Press Record Communications and Crisis Ready Institute Launch Strategic Partnership to Elevate External and Internal Communications

FEBRUARY 28, 2023 – NEW YORK, NY – Press Record Communications, an integrated communications firm that connects public relations, marketing, and business development, and Crisis Ready Institute, a public benefit corporation that equips leaders and organizations with the mindset, skills, and capabilities to effectively manage through times of change, challenge, and crisis in a way that fosters trust and strengthens brand equity, today announced a strategic partnership to provide internal communications education, and internal and external communications services.

Press Record Communications will incorporate Crisis Ready Institute’s internal communications expertise and services into communications campaigns developed for clients. Additionally, through this partnership, Press Record clients will gain access to:

  • Crisis Ready Institute experts who can provide commentary for audio, video, and written content development.
  • Discounts to Crisis Ready Institute courses and events.
  • Connections to Crisis Ready Institute members to develop strategic collaborations and opportunities.

Press Record clients that complete Crisis Ready Institute courses will receive certificates of completion and can enroll in a follow up Crisis Ready Institute certification class, at a discounted rate, that ties back to the initial course completed.

“Internal communications is increasingly playing a role in avoiding internal crises, including steady declines in employee engagement and retention,” said Justin Goldstein, Founder and Lead Strategist, Press Record Communications. “The Institute avoids generic crisis preparedness strategies and education which will only benefit our clients’ work to foster trust internally and build thriving and sustainable businesses that withstand the test of time.”
