Talk to Kith about crisis response.
Not responding wasn't an option. I don't know what we would've done if we hadn't had Kith because there were so many facets to consider. Every word had to be crafted so carefully.
We worked closely with Kith on communications with a fast turnaround. They jumped right in within hours and became an extension of our team.
We were aware of both an impending protest on campus and announcements we were going to make that had grave reputation implications. We felt we didn’t have sufficient crisis communication protocols to handle them. Kith immediately understood the complications inherent in the kinds of contentious situations we were facing and our need to get up to speed quickly

Engaging Kith’s Crisis Response Team
Hourly rates or caps on services shouldn’t keep you from complete crisis recovery. That’s why Kith crisis response services are all-inclusive.
We work closely with only a handful of clients, so we can devote the attention it takes to deliver this full suite of crisis services.
We’ll quote you a flat monthly fee. The rate will be based on the scope of the crisis — with a more intensive engagement at the outset of the crisis.
As the crisis is controlled and your team is equipped, you will need us less often.
Bill's approach is methodical, honest, and real. Bill successfully led our family through a crisis that seemed at the time unsurmountable and that garnered national media attention for weeks. His integrity during every step of our journey was not only refreshing but led to a lasting friendship

The day you call a crisis expert can be one of the hardest days of your life. There’s no getting around it — a crisis will put you to the test.
But we will help you get through this, just as we’ve helped some of the best-known companies, institutions and politicians in the United States.
The first step is to reach out confidentially. From there, we’ll give you our objective advice on what to do next.
Bill is what is needed during any critical moment: a calming and smart influence who always thinks two steps ahead.
