Companies are more likely than ever to face a crisis. A 2018 Deloitte study revealed that 80 percent of organizations worldwide had to mobilize their crisis management teams at least once in the past two years. Not only are crises more frequent, they are becoming more intense in today's connected and dynamic landscape. While you might not be able to avoid a crisis, you can mitigate the impact to your business. Big Sky Crisis Communications delivers strategic advice and support to protect organizations from the reputation and operational harm caused by crisis scenarios, including cyber, litigation, regulatory investigations, workplace conduct, activism, executive transition and many other unexpected events.

Big Sky Crisis Communications was founded to help companies make the best of bad situations. We provide strategic advice and customized materials that organizations use to prepare for, respond to and recover from crisis scenarios. While many larger agencies also provide crisis support, their fee structures often prohibit businesses with limited budgets from engaging with them. Big Sky delivers high quality services at a price point that puts crisis communications counsel in reach for all companies when they need it most.
