While the Covid-19 pandemic presents real challenges and dilemmas in all walks of life, Montfort is focusing on short term solutions and long-term intelligence to help our clients plot their way through the crisis.
While many businesses are rightly cautious of ‘putting heads above the parapet’, making forecasts and defining outcomes at this stage, there remain very important communications needs within all organisations.
Montfort is fully operational, actively helping clients deal across a range of complex issues, including:
- dealing with severe business disruption, (site closures, shutdowns and supply chain issues)
- financial markets communications (profit warnings and restructurings)
- advice on employee communications (helping manage workforce uncertainty – see some of our thinking here)
- customer communications
- handling unhelpful or sensationalist media coverage
More positively, we have advised a client on its decision to re-task its cosmetics factories to create hand gels for the Government. We are giving counsel to a household-name retail business which is seeking to pivot into community support for its customer base. And we are also involved in helping clients with their forward planning and commercial decision-making as they consider how they emerge from the crisis.
The Montfort team is available 24/7 – individually, in groups or as an entire organisation – via video link and Zoom.
We also have full access to a market forecaster who has correctly predicted ALL of the events and trends of the last twelve months and is available to advise of market directionality (macro and micro) as well as the ongoing response of the financial and political world to the Covid-19 scenario.
Please do get in touch if we can help in any way
