  • Crisis communications advice and direct support for significant events and issues where reactive comment is required and there is the potential damage to the LEP’s reputation
  • Strategic advice for key messaging in support of the LEP’s key objectives
  • Monitoring, collation and evaluation of all media coverage with a report shared with GBSLEP each month

We do not require specific support on social or web-based channels as this is carried out in-house. However, this may form part of the strategic advice for key messaging
