Crisis Communications

Lobby Golf event in Hawaii:

The Lobby Golf event received worldwide coverage on CNN-TV.

Persian Gulf War trading cards:
Deflected criticism away from officials at the Topps Company, which had produced war trading cards.† Repositioned the client in a positive way with national media, educators and consumers.

Dani Tyler/Olympic softball player:
Turned an unfortunate mistake (missing home plate on a potential game-winning HR in the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta) into a positive situation with the media and general public.† Tyler went on to help the U.S. team earn the Gold medal and along the way won over the hearts of sports fans everywhere for her ability to handle media questions.† Ibach & Associates handled her media training session prior to those interviews.
