Well-executed, strategic communications are essential to create trust, increase revenue and preserve and protect a company’s brand.

We pride ourselves on establishing deep relationships with our clients, with business value at the forefront of our approach. We are always there to support your business needs 24 hours a day seven days a week.

Our corporate team is made up of former journalists, in-house communications directors and marketing professionals, giving you a rounded approach when it comes to corporate communications.

Corporate Positioning

Our approach starts with creating a compelling narrative that captures a company’s vision, direction and culture. We work closely with C-Suite executives and in-house communication departments to really get under the skin of the company and uncover differentiators that stand you apart from your competitors. With a forward-thinking narrative, we help to resonate your authentic identity.

Thought Leadership

Thought Leadership, a tangible piece of intellectual property, can be used effectively as a business development tool and to quickly catapult you into the media. Our carefully crafted thought leadership projects are specifically designed to support our corporate clients in multiple sectors. Our projects will position you as an informed opinion leader, whose expertise is sought and rewarded. In turn, this will bring you greater dialogue with the media, your target audiences, stakeholders and the key influencers you need to reach.

Internal/Stakeholder Communications

We work closely with clients to make sure that identity and image is harmonised, with internal stakeholders sharing the same vision as external stakeholders. We help to ensure that your employees hold the same emotional attachment as your customers. We work with clients to protect their reputation and to build trust with their stakeholders and their expectation of future behaviour based on past performance.

Public Affairs Support

We have been positioning and building some of the UK’s largest corporate brands. Tavistock uses public relations and public affairs to shift perceptions and to make change happen. We have significant experience of lobbying MPs and figures within the Government, providing a No 10 style campaign grid, which has resulted in shifts in government perceptions, and helps you to engage in constructive social dialogue in regard to some of the most critical issues of the day.
We help our clients navigate their institutional connections, constructively liaise in policy discussions and build meaningful public alliances.

Crisis Management

We provide crisis management 24/7. It can take a decade to build a brand and one day to destroy it. At Tavistock we limit or eradicate the damage effectively by acting quickly and positively. If a company communicates effectively you can turn a crisis into an opportunity. Tavistock has a team of experts, including ex-financial journalists, who understand the media and therefore are in a better position to stop a crisis situation from occurring.

During the first 30 days of working with you we will unravel any/all potential crisis scenarios so the company is fully prepared. This includes social media and SEO engagement. We will also introduce crisis management scenarios, whereby we roleplay a crisis situation to show you how it can be handled, dealt with, stopped or used to your advantage.

Reputation Management

Corporate reputation is one of the most important assets, and should be carefully crafted, especially as corporates embrace the digital age. We support clients to uncover their authentic identity in ways that resonate with stakeholders and inspire support for their long-term vision for the business. One of the main drivers of competitiveness derives from reputation. For over two decades Tavistock has been working with clients to build strategic advantage by generating favourable perceptions about companies in the minds of key stakeholders. These perceptions become visible in the attractiveness of the company’s products, services, trademarks, and brands, and constitute a company’s reputational capital.

“As a company grows, communication becomes one of its biggest challenges.”
