Strategic Communications

Public relations and communication strategies are never one-size-fits-all, though that’s especially true for anyone with, or aspiring to have, a significant presence in Hawaiʻi.  Our communities, our culture, our complex business climate and bureaucracies all demand a highly thoughtful, well-informed and intensely personalized approach. And that’s where the Bennet Group excels.

Hard at work in Hawaii since 1997, Joan and her team have cultivated invaluable relationships with key business, governance and philanthropic leaders across the state, as well as representatives from every major media outlet. Carefully crafting strategic messaging for our clients, and connecting them with the most appropriate local partners is how we consistently deliver measurable, and very often award-winning results.

 

Telling Your Story

Bennet Group has extensive experience in key areas, including media relations, changing public opinion, marketing services and crisis communications. We know how to connect our clients to the media, business influencers, community leaders- and consumers. We also build relationships and shape opinions with your employees, your community partners- and your customers. We present your story in a way that is powerful and memorable, using the right tone, for the right audience, at the right time.
