AT RAVENYARD, WE BELIEVE THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS WORK/LIFE BALANCE.

THERE IS ONLY LIFE.

OUR MISSION IS TO SUPPORT LEADERS IN CRISIS

Ravenyard is a crisis management consultancy that helps companies and leaders navigate challenging situations. That ranges from traditional crisis management to more routine types of professional hardship. Our approach fuses technical expertise in law, finance, and branding with a commitment to well-being. And because all crisis is about the humans involved, we start there.

RAVENYARD BELIEVES THAT CRISIS IS

CHAOTIC

An effective response requires structure and an ordered process.

EMOTIONALLY CHARGED

Leaders need support for their well-being in order to effectively lead through crisis.

MULTI-

DIMENSIONAL

There are interrelated technical, operational, reputational, legal, and financial challenges. PR is only a small piece.
