The difference

Since 1992 John Connolly & Partners has been successfully helping clients solve complex issues that involve communities, employees, investors, governments, regulators, the courts and the media.
 

  1. We developed the concept of the corporate brand and how it drives corporate reputation.
     
  2. We train the executives we work with to best communication practice across all functions because reputation is a whole of company issue.
     
  3. We use evidence based strategies combined with deep experience.
     
  4. We use our own commissioned research to help clients understand the world better than anyone else.
 
 
 
 

Over 26 years the firm has built an international reputation for successfully handling difficult and sensitive issues for large corporations. We have a global orientation and an international network of relationships.

Our relationship with our clients is characterised not by the nature of the client's business but by a broad view and deep understanding of the client's strategic business objectives. In virtually all cases, our relationship is with the chief executive and the chairman.

 

Our work has included:

  • Introduction of new CEOs to Australian, US, UK and Asian companies
     
  • Successful major industry campaigns
     
  • Global advice on sensitive issues involving the SEC, DOJ and similar institutions
     
  • Successful advice for companies involved in Royal Commissions, Senate Inquiries, UK Parliamentary Inquiries
     
  • Project managing communications in major transactions including mergers & acquisitions, IPOs and restructures
     
  • Project management of sensitive community issues in Asia and South America
     
  • Global advice, strategy development and coordination for European based organisations facing serious issues
     
  • Litigation support for some of Australia's most high profile cases including class actions, commercial disputes, regulatory matters, employment disputes and international arbitration
