Friday, 13 March 2020

TORONTO, ON – Friday, March 13, 2020 – Beattie Tartan, the global integrated communications agency, has specialist teams across North America, the UK and Ireland dedicated to helping clients navigate the communications and reputational challenges of coronavirus.

With boots on the ground in Toronto, Montreal, Winnipeg, Calgary, Vancouver and Victoria, and over 30 years of experience on both sides of the pond, Beattie Tartan is becoming one of Canada’s most trusted crisis communications agencies for brands looking to for support with crisis planning, issues management, message development and strategy rollout. 

We specialize in travel, tourism, hospitality, food and beverage, transportation, retail, community and business associations, arts and entertainment, lifestyle, culture, real estate and charity/non-profit.

Launched in early February, the team was set up after Beattie’s reputation management division was inundated with enquiries from new and existing clients seeking advice on how to manage internal and external communications as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.

Our team has been actively supporting clients and monitoring the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and, as the situation continues to evolve at a rapid pace, we understand there are a number of challenges for businesses and organizations. Our team can provide strategic counsel on:

  • All internal and external audience communications
  • Development and dissemination of media statements, press releases
  • Digital and social media messaging for communications during a crisis
  • Reputation management
  • Communicating changing event or conference plans due to postponement or cancellation
  • Media training for senior leadership in the public eye
  • Active and ongoing response planning
