In the summer of 2000, we spent three months in Walkerton, Ontario, providing media relations support for the Town's notorious E. coli water contamination.


Crisis & Issues Management

We are acutely aware that unanswered bad news - whether true or false - can have a devastating long-term impact on an organization's brand or an individual's character. Eleven PR has extensive experience helping clients respond quickly and strategically to their full range of audiences during the course of complicated and sensitive crises and other special situations.

We have successfully counseled clients dealing with issues including bankruptcies, labour disruptions, mergers and acquisitions, executive changes, product recalls, food and water contaminations, lawsuits, power outages and more. Our Principal, Warren Weeks, spent more than three months conducting media relations work in the Town of Walkerton in the summer of 2000 during that community's notorious E. coli water contamination that killed seven people and sickened thousands.

We will conduct a comprehensive crisis communications audit and help your company develop or bolster the communications components of your business continuity plans.
