What We Do

Founded in 1998, Sloane & Company is an industry-leading strategic communications firm. We are known for our intelligence, creativity and focus on getting results. Sloane operates as an independent subsidiary of leading public affairs firm SKDK.

 

WHY WE’RE DIFFERENT: We have served as trusted advisors on hundreds of high-stakes matters for some of the most prominent companies, organizations and leaders in the business world. Unlike other firms, the senior members of the team are deeply involved in the account and serve as your strategic partners every day. We reject a one-size-fits-all approach, and tailor communications strategies that resonate across audiences.

 

 

WHO WE WORK WITH: We work with companies of all sizes, from some of the most prominent and recognizable Fortune 10 companies to small-cap firms and start-ups. Our communications experts have deep knowledge across industries and sectors and are adept at learning all aspects of a client’s business.

Corporate Communications

Our focus is on supporting our clients’ corporate and business strategies while enhancing and protecting their reputations.  We achieve this by understanding the challenges and opportunities facing our clients and then developing and executing multi-faceted media relations, thought leadership and corporate positioning programs that reach the right audiences to deliver results.  Sloane & Company has deep relationships and hard-won credibility with all levels of the media, and our team takes pride in consistently generating creative new ideas around content and tactics to deliver success for our clients. 

Our communications programs include:

      • Executive positioning and thought leadership
      • Contributed content such as by-lined articles / op-eds, LTEs
      • Editorial board briefings
      • Serving as on the record spokespeople
      • Executive speech drafting
      • Employee communications
      • Media & presentation training
      • Conference and speaking engagements

MEDIA RELATIONS

We are media relations experts. We have solid, long-standing ties to key reporters, anchors, producers and editors at the top national and business media outlets across the board and we understand how to capitalize on online and social media opportunities to advance the dialogue further.

Relationships and access represent only a piece of the media relations puzzle. We grow our clients’ media landscape and create opportunities every day through discovery and creativity. For example, we like to say there are ten ways to get in the Wall Street Journal and often times the least obvious can offer the greatest return.

SHAREHOLDER ACTIVISM & CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

We have advised boards, C-suite executives and investors on hundreds of shareholder activism situations. Pound for pound, no other communications firm has worked on as many of these matters in recent years. We know what it takes to win and differentiate ourselves by rejecting a “one size fits all” playbook – instead delivering constantly evolving communications strategies built on experience in the trenches.

      • Strategic counsel
      • Media relations and investor relations

Our team is highly adept at supporting every element of the deal, from communicating transaction value and rationale at launch to managing the integration and regulatory approval process through close – taking into account audiences from Wall Street to Main Street.

SOCIAL MEDIA, DIGITAL STRATEGY,

DESIGN & ANALYTICS

Digital communications continues to take on new importance in a socially distant world. Brands need to prioritize digital communications tools as they navigate new ways of working.

We utilize a creative, data-driven approach to guide our digital strategies and optimize digital communications efforts to ensure we’re reaching the right audiences with the right messages and driving value for our clients.
