Strategic Counsel

Strategic Counsel for Crisis Management. Issues Management. Incident Management.

A business crisis may be known by many names, but its impact can be costly and disruptive no matter how you describe it. You need strategic counsel.

Many organizations are not well prepared for the fallout that a crisis can trigger.  ICM can help.

Our guiding principles in counseling executives are honesty, transparency, and empathy. The recommendations we make support these critical values.   ICM’s seasoned consultants engage directly with business leaders, legal counsel, board members and other key players to develop strategy and tactics tailored to address each unique situation.

ICM’s research-based model is unique in the crisis management field.  We have identified and tracked crisis trends across the globe for more than 33 years. We use our database, comprising more than two million negative news stories across the globe, to advise clients on the most likely scenarios to keep in mind, and we help them develop field-proven strategies to prepare for the inevitable.

We are available to consult in-person, by telephone or video conference, whatever is most convenient for you.
