The rise of activist investors has transformed the landscape in which companies operate, necessitating more transparent and adept financial communications across industries. With backgrounds in finance, law, analyst/investor relations and corporate communications, our expert team employs a deep understanding of relevant financial audiences and keen insights into regulatory environments to advise clients on what to say, when to say it and how to deliver it.
Our strategic planning process includes comprehensive communications rollout plans and messaging materials that address key concerns in every major market worldwide. Whether our client is a publicly traded Fortune 100, a private equity shop or a VC, we have extensive experience crafting compelling value creation stories for key internal and external stakeholders, leveraging both traditional media and the latest digital and social media channels.
In an era where talent is hard to find, engagement is weak and every employee has a platform for making their views known, companies must re-envision their people as “consumers on the inside,” building relationships that are two-way, authentic and grounded in trust. It’s paramount to find unconventional ways to earn employees’ and prospects’ attention to capture both hearts and minds.
AMG MPR, in partnership with our global management consultancy, brings together organizational psychologists, strategic counselors, creative experts and digital gurus to help our clients do just that. With experience working for some of the world’s best-known companies, we’re masters at aligning employees — whether they’re at a desk, in a factory or on the road — around a shared purpose and vision for the future. Our work inspires discretionary effort and recommitment and helps turn employees into your strongest advocates.
In this age of uncertainty, populism, and activism, hope is not a strategy, especially when a crisis strikes. Organizations must continuously assess and plan against potential threats, and equip internal stakeholders with the appropriate skills, resources and values. Examining who they are and what they stand for, organizations should build a culture of risk management grounded in a clear, purpose-driven mission.
With fake news, the rise of bots and an always-on digital echo chamber, reputations can be tarnished in an instant. The key to our crisis management approach is providing our clients with a strategy based upon actionable intelligence. Our real-time social listening and issues-forecasting processes provide analysis and context across all relevant channels (even the less common). And by understanding how to manage today’s complex issues, we ensure that our clients maintain control of their destiny when the stakes are highest.
While business leaders today focus on innovation as the path to growth and success, they are fighting an undertow of resentment against globalization, immigration and automation. Companies operate in an increasingly unpredictable and seemingly unmanageable world where others have been given access to their thoughts (through cyber leaks), their reputations (through social media) and their boardrooms (through activism).
AMG MPR’s corporate counselors challenge clients to view the current climate as an opportunity to differentiate, reposition and outflank the competition. We are trusted partners and strategic guides, bringing expertise and insights that deepen understanding of today’s obstacles and possibilities, advancing company culture and protecting reputation and brand.

It’s a question we get asked a lot, and it can mean so many different things. At AMG MPR, our Content and Publishing Strategy teams are the ones who work out who we create content with, what format it takes, and where it lives.
This is based on audience behavior and a deep cultural understanding of why & how people consume content today.
The team know when to produce branded content and when it should be made in partnership with a publisher, community or thought leader. They know when it’s right to work with influencers – and who those influencers need to be. They’ll connect you with them, provide best practice, and make your partnerships truly sing.
They know all about editorial, long-form, snackable, video and even voice. They’ll show you the latest social formats – and explain how & why they work. They’ll share continued best practice from a media landscape that’s ever-changing, and prove why a consistent visual identity across everything we create is so key.
They’ll tell you how and why to use different channels. They set up global newsrooms, social strategies, influencer outreach and multichannel content marketing programs that span everything from email to web. They’ll give you a strategic point of view on paid media and native advertising, how to integrate search behavior and show you the consumer journey across multiple touchpoints.
