CitySavvy provides a comprehensive assortment of corporate communications counsel and support services. These range from C-suite advisory and market intelligence to the implementation of public relations campaigns. We adopt a highly personalised approach to servicing each one of our clients, whether large or small, to deliver bespoke strategies and strong results.
External communications, reputation management and C-suite advisory are the fundamental elements of CitySavvy’s service proposition. We work predominantly with companies seeking long- term, retained and multi-disciplinary strategic communications and PR counsel. From core message development to campaign management and damage control, we help our clients understand how best to promote and present their firms, and provide market intelligence and insight to corporate boards.
We help our clients engage with the media and build long term beneficial relationships with relevant and influential correspondents and media outlets. Journalist relationships are critical and we treat them with the same respect that we do our clients. We offer the full range of media relations capabilities whether you want to maximize, minimise or simply manage press exposure.
Corporate and financial copywriting and content creation are key capabilities delivered by our team. This encompasses projects such as annual reports, sustainability reports, c-suite speeches, op-eds, brochures, newsletters in print and digital, case studies, and increasingly online messaging and marketing support. It is also possible to arrange for educational workshops and individualized trainings for our clients’ internal PR teams. Where required, we work with trusted partners to deliver fully integrated projects that include design and digital.
We have a long track record of helping emerging and established fund managers to promote their new products. With many years of experience collaborating with managers and esoteric funds, we have a refined ‘package’ of complementary cost effective services to support new fund or manager launches on a project basis.
CitySavvy coaches executives to deliver concise, convincing and well-crafted messages. We combine the presentation skills of professional performers from theater, TV and film with the story-telling expertise and industry knowledge of international journalists and high-level communications experts.
Issues and crisis situations demand swift management and response. During these times you may not want to talk to journalists, but the media is likely to demand official comments or statements. CitySavvy has skilled and experienced issues response professionals to guide you through this demanding process. We are able to deploy issues and crisis communication support in all significant European and US markets within 24 hours.
