There is a reason we have “Make It Happen” on the mantle in our conference room. It is the way we do things. HighGround’s successful strategic approach to everything we do is rooted in the fact that we provide the complete public affairs package. We can give you the strategy, management, and the necessary tools to implement solutions.
The HighGround team has more than fifty years of national and local media and public relations experience. Our team can launch full public relations efforts from the ground up or bring additional strategic thinking to current public relations efforts and help expand them to appeal to key audiences. Our team has extensive public relations experience in working for Governors, Congressmen, Departments of State Government, cities, towns, winning candidates, corporations, and many other organizations. Our team is experienced in serving public and private sector clients through time at other Arizona public relations firms as well.
Public Information Communications
HighGround provides communications strategy, public involvement, and survey research for public clients including local municipalities and school districts. Our consulting work is solely focused on providing accurate, unbiased public information to all taxpayers and registered voters. We do not advocate for any election issue on behalf of a public client and our team maintains a strict adherence to activities that are permitted under election law.
Message Discipline and Timeline
Having a strategic messaging platform and a timeline are the two most critical components to any public relations effort. We are committed to message discipline – having the experience and expertise to make sure that you are talking about what you want to talk about instead of reacting to the media and any opponents. Too often, public relations efforts are drawn off course by engaging in discussions that are not geared toward reaching your goals. Staying the course (or as we like to call it, staying on your rhetorical “yoga mat”) is a skill that we have developed over time, and it is something we can share with you.
One of our greatest areas of expertise is crisis communications. Our team is experienced at leading executives through the media crisis process and effective at negotiating the rules of engagement with unfriendly reporters. We are also experienced in navigating media situations to prevent them from turning into a full-blown crisis.
