What we do
Waves advises top executives and boards on strategic communication that supports the company’s business strategy. We prepare or contribute to the communications strategy and all its elements, develop the company narrative and identify and prepare memorable key messages. We plan the implementation, help prepare the individual efforts and turn words into action. Last but not least, we equip your managers to take on the communications task.
We do not deliver a raft of quibbles that end up in a desk drawer.

Waves advises on how companies can pre-empt potentially critical issues. We identify the potentially critical issues and prepare a brief plan for how the issue should be handled and communicated in case it develops. We prepare a statement, messages and Q&A’s to ensure that the company is optimally prepared and that the risk of an actual crisis is diminished. Companies often focus on crisis management, but a focus on Issues Management can actually help keep the crisis at bay. That is why Issues Management is a very valuable tool.

Waves is your experienced, confidential and discreet partner during a critical or crisis situation. With transparent and proactive communication, we ensure optimal handling of the press and communication to customers and employees that provide stability and give management space to get the crisis under control and focus on daily operations. Our goal is not just to get you safely through the crisis, but to use it to strengthen your image. As a responsible company, you are not judged on your actions but on the way you handle them.

Mergers & Acquisitions
Waves advises top executives and boards when companies are acquired, sold, transformed or merged. We prepare an executable strategic communications plan for the entire process and make sure that the company communicates optimally to employees, customers, the media and other stakeholders – at the right times. We develop the story about the upcoming process and prepare key messages, Q&A’s, presentations etc. that equip the executives to take on the communications task.

Media & presentation training
Waves offers tailored media and presentation training for both individuals and groups. The training combines theory, camera training and feedback and is always based on the participants’ and the company’s specific needs. Our media training sharpens your messages and ability to prepare an interview, and we practise interviews in front of the camera – also critical ones. Our presentation training optimises your ability to prepare, develop and give a presentation that engages your audience.

Waves identifies and develops the company’s stories. We base them on clear-cut, memorable messages that grab the target group’s attention, and we know how to frame the good story. Waves teaches the company how to handle the press directly, helps the company identify relevant media and journalists, prepares and sends out press releases and delivers media analyses and reports. We also function as permanent press office/contact, especially for large foreign companies.
