The government of a NATO ally sought to purchase a multi-billion-dollar defensive system. However, the procurement required strong popular support, which was threatened by an aggressive Russian misinformation campaign aimed at scuttling the purchase.
Drawing on extensive research, we uncovered a significant insight: the Russians had previously employed a similar campaign to derail a different business deal in the same country. We recognized that by studying the Russian campaign, we could develop an effective strategy to counter their misinformation efforts.
Our approach focused on empowering a key political constituency through accurate information. Instead of merely reacting to the multitude of Russian lies, we proactively educated this constituency, using their preferred communication medium, about the facts surrounding the defensive system. This enabled them to see through the Russian propaganda and disregard it.
The approach was a resounding success. The government secured overwhelming support for the procurement, leading to a significant new revenue stream for the company. Furthermore, when Russia invaded Ukraine, the defensive system was deployed and operational, helping deter Russian aggression against NATO.
We’ll start with a free initial consultation. During the consultation, we’ll have a conversation about what you’re trying to achieve. If we can help you, we’ll let you know. And if we can’t, we’ll be transparent about it.
Your information will always remain confidential, as required by the Public Relations Society of America’s code of ethics. Should you have a highly sensitive matter, we are open to entering into a nondisclosure agreement.
If we're a good fit, we’ll create a concise written proposal detailing our collaborative approach to address your organization’s challenges. This proposal will outline rough timelines, recommend specific actions and deliverables, and provide general cost estimates. You and your team will have the opportunity to review the proposal; if necessary, we will revise the proposal’s scope based on your feedback. Once everything meets your expectations, we’ll finalize the contract and formalize our partnership.
Every project starts with a question: What are your business objectives?
From there, and in close partnership with you and your team, we’ll dive into the issues and challenges. We’ll combine what we’ve learned with additional research and our decades of expertise to develop a tailored solution that solves your business problem.
After you approve the solution, we’ll put it into action. We’ll evaluate progress based on metrics that make sense for you and your organization. And, as the situation evolves, we’ll adjust our approach.
