The Caplan Approach

We are known for a holistic communications approach that balances proactive and reactive strategic advocacy with a completely transparent process. We form a team environment with our clients, collaborating at every stage as we work to identify key objectives and develop the most effective method for realizing them. We manage campaigns proactively by networking with and prepping primary constituents and the media in advance, then implement campaigns with precision, staying nimble as we execute every aspect of the campaign, from making news and engaging the press to managing breaking developments with rapid response.  Our crisis communications practice is also well known for supporting organizations in need of turnkey advocacy and response.
