COMMUNICATION ADVICE


We all communicate – daily, verbally, or non-verbally. Communication is necessary. Good communication is valuable and based on your strengths. Credible communication is the basis for long-term success, also in competitive situations.

Communication is our passion. We support you in your communication with contact persons and interest groups such as employees, partners, suppliers, customers, investors, media, associations, and public institutions – in a responsible, curious, and creative manner.

Together with you, we lay the foundation for your communication, built upon your strengths and values and with which you can communicate your unique story on a long-term and sustainable basis.

 


We support you in developing and implementing your individual communication strategy with a much-needed outside perspective. Together with you, we develop communication concepts for internal and external communication.

We accompany you in positioning your enterprise. We make your strengths visible and support you in communicating the essence of your activities. We are at your side – from the strategy over the concept to the implementation and reputation management.
Do good and talk about it – we make sure that your activities are perceived. We advise you in the areas of media relations, media releases, and media conferences. We support you in composing and editing texts, in putting together Q & A, and in unique communication messages.

We are at your side in supporting and managing communication projects. It does not matter if they are local, national, or international projects – we accompany you from the first concept idea up to implantation and evaluation.
If you want to reach elusive goals, you must excite other people. We accompany you as a leader in positioning and in reputation management, in internal communication and with all stakeholders, in public appearances and speeches, and in theme management.


We ask the right questions at your panel meeting, and manage events, meetings, and conferences. We support you in challenging and emotional discussions responsibly, inquiringly, and creatively.

 

 

Communication creates added value

Dialog stands in the middle of trustworthy communication. Engagement, trust, interpersonal relationships, and a good reputation are the central elements of qualitatively valuable communication.

Each factor of this model is associated with communication challenges that we want to work on together with you, in order to attain the results agreed on.

 

Engagement

Management communication and coaching: How do you as CEO create the balance between leadership and employee enhancement? Leadership communication is an individual challenge and requires measures tailored to your needs. We strengthen your leadership position and the entrepreneurial culture with targeted coaching and regular events, based on your personality, the team constellation and dynamics, as well as the growth phase of the enterprise.

Dialog

Launching a new communication platform: As an internationally active enterprise, you want a platform (e.g. a conference) that connects with and brings together all stakeholders from around the world. You create the basis for credible discussions and a strong relationship among and with the participants with a socially relevant theme as a starting point, with suitable messages at the right time, and with tactical stakeholder management.

Trust

Internal communication: a rapidly growing enterprise with a growing number of employees needs internal structures, clear communication, and the proper communication channels. Clear roles and responsibilities as well as relevant, deliberately publicized communication messages support the team spirit, increase trust in the management, and strengthen the identification of the employees with the organization.

Relationships

Support of a realignment: digitalization and disruptive models lead to internal changes in the entire enterprise which often represent a challenge to you and to the management. Early planning and communication of the various measures as well as the realization of regular discussion rounds with individual teams and persons strengthen the relationship to your employees.

Reputation

Launch of a CSR project and network support: corporate social responsibility begins at the management level; it consists of personal conviction. Creativity, curiosity, and engagement of management form the basis for a credible CSR and authentic communication with external partners. You can sustainably influence your reputation with a long-term communication strategy and targeted stakeholder management.

MODERATION


 

"A good moderator is like a suspender: only when it fails do you notice that it exists." – Roberto Benigni

We have more than 20 years of moderation and stage experience and offer advice, concepts, research, editorial work, and moderation.

A good and competent moderation defines a successful event. We ask the right questions at your panel discussion, lead the way through your events, meetings, and conferences – in German, English, French, Italian, and Spanish.

We also support difficult discussions and assume the role of a mediator.

Not all discussions are pleasant and proceed without friction – they can be challenging and full of emotion. Anyone who does not talk, will not advance.

We support you in difficult situations with responsibility, curiosity, and creativity. We analyze the conflict situation exactly, approach the involved persons, and develop sustainable solutions that will advance you and your team.
