Reputation Matters:
It is that simple.

Rick Rice


Corporate & Crisis Communications



A good reputation is your most valuable asset. It is also your most volatile asset, changing with virtually every interaction. And, no matter how good your reputation is today, it is probably not the one you’ll need in the future in this changing world.


If you’re wondering whether you should hire a consultant who specializes in corporate reputation and crisis management, you probably should. An outside consultant brings unbiased views on where you are and how to move forward.


I help individuals, start-ups and enterprise organizations build, manage, protect and repair their reputations both in the normal course of business and through crisis situations.  Whether you need a quick evaluation of your communications strategy, assistance with a short-term crisis situation or a more in-depth consulting relationship, I can help. I work with clients directly and also consult through agencies, giving them an extra resource they can trust to work with their clients.


Whatever the project, I can scale to meet your needs by tapping into my network of top-tier communications professionals. They specialize in all aspects of communications and work with me to get the results you need.
