Great leaders should also be great communicators. Having the right tools and thoroughly understanding your audience can enhance your reputation and prepare you to lead in times of change. Find out more about how we do it in this short video.
Whether preparing a new CEO in developing a masterful communications strategy or helping an existing senior executive become a messenger that produces unshakable faith, we begin each deployment with a clean slate. We customize your communications strategy to deliver on your specific business objectives. We don’t use templates or generic, off-the-shelf solutions. Think of our work as purchasing a beautifully tailored suit compared to something off the rack.
Each deployment begins with a foundation that is based on a thorough understanding of:
Our methods succeed by giving complete attention to all three. In the end, even the most complicated narrative becomes eloquently simple. Even the newest speaker becomes an authentic and masterful storyteller. Even the most jaded audience buys and takes ownership of the message.
Every single executive we have supported has a unique “presentation DNA” that cannot be changed. In fact, finding and identifying their communications brand not only helps them be taken seriously, add strong presentation skills and the results can be magic. Our clients never have to turn into someone else in order to get their message across. Our method is centered on their becoming themselves so they reach people powerfully, eloquently, and simply.
Behind every message is an intention and this is where we begin.
By clearly crafting all that a client intends to accomplish with a message provides the foundation to reexamine every word, to consider the “presentation DNA” of the messenger and make the first round of adjustments in how we deliver the communications.
“People think that the directors direct actors. No. Really, what the director’s doing is directing the audience’s eye through the film.”

Every organization has its own unique set of expectations, needs, and styles.
So many communications programs miss their potential because they have not developed an intimate, detailed and substantive understanding of the audience. Even the most well-prepared speaker and well-developed message can miss because we are not connecting with the audience’s unique needs and expectations.
This is one area that separates Greig Communications from others. We are intensely focused on understanding what drives the audience, what variety of mixed expectations they bring to the table. By always modifying and crafting the communications to meet every unique audience, then and only then do we reach our greatest potential.
Our team members have lengthy and successful track records in leading highly successful communications programs during mergers and acquisitions totaling $6.29 Billion in the United States, Europe, and Japan.
We thrive on orchestrating a new communications approach and helping our internal partners address the challenges, complications, and scope of large mergers and acquisitions. We come alive sorting through multiple stakeholders, defining a newly blended communications strategy or leading a client onto entirely new ground. Above all, we find that every merger and acquisition becomes a vast learning experience for everyone involved. For us, work doesn’t get better.

Technology has created more change in how we communicate, are evaluated, and judged. Messages, both good and bad, transmit in an instant. Many organizations have not come to terms with the new transparency that impacts each and every one of us, all of our leaders as well as employers. Some would call that a loss of privacy. We view transparency as the new truth.
Hence, our corporate communications programs embrace all of the hard-won experience we have had in working with CEOs and navigating clients through complicated and high-risk mergers and acquisitions.
We center our energy in building unbreakable trust with our clients, audiences and employees who can become fully engaged or disengaged in how we tell the truth or not. At times, our work becomes cultural. Quite simply, we have never had a point in history where so many people can see everything we do.
After defining all that our client wants to accomplish, we bring in the strategists, artists and creators to help every communication from public presentations, digital media, virtual communications, and employee messaging become winning, truthful, aspirational and at times, brave.
