There is always a way forward.
For more than 20 years, Navigator has supported clients with effective counsel, strategy and support. Amid disruption, transformation and uncertainty, our proprietary methodologies ask the toughest questions, uncover indispensable answers and ensure you understand the big picture. Stop reacting and seize control, when success is critical and you can’t afford to lose.
To successfully respond to crisis you can prepare, respond and recover. Focusing on what’s within your control mitigates risk and minimizes damage. Navigator provides strategic advice to boards, executives, and individuals. Our approach prioritizes proactive planning and decisive action rooted in transparency and authenticity. But if you haven’t had time to plan, we’ll help you manage the crisis and find a way forward. Don’t let negativity define you. We help you lead through adversity.
Reputations aren’t bought. They’re made. In business, as in life, credibility is everything. It’s your audiences’ willingness to give, buy, invest, extend, permit, join, or be persuaded. Without it you won’t get very far. Navigator works with companies, organizations, athletes, artists, and non-profits to elevate public perceptions and communicate with key stakeholders.
Navigator offers a full suite of government relations services across Canada to help you build your advocacy strategy. Having served prime ministers, premiers, cabinet ministers, and elected officeholders at every level of government and of all political stripes, we know what it is like to sit across the table from those advocating their position. This first-hand experience provides a unique vantage to better understand what motivates political decision-makers and how to align your issues and advocacy with their agenda.
Public affairs campaigns
There is no tougher communications assignment than a campaign. Every contest is high-stakes winner take all requiring speed, agility, accuracy, and discipline. We have won campaigns for Canada’s most successful organizations, political leaders, prominent Canadians, advocacy groups and NGOs.
Navigator provides strategic counsel, as well as stakeholder and investor relations support on all sides of M&A transactions, activism challenges, and investment theses that intersect with political and regulatory risk to companies, investors, funds, and regulatory bodies worldwide.
THE COVID-19 CRISIS has revealed a great deal about the character of humanity. It has demonstrated the extent to which people can come together, and it has laid bare the systemic inequalities within our current economic structure and social fabric….Read Now
