Since 2001, Croatia-based company TENEO PR Consulting has been specialized in individual, tailor-made projects in the fields of public relations and marketing consulting. Teneo cooperates with the largest Croatian and regional (EU) public relations & advertising agencies.

Media Relations

Upon a client’s request, Teneo will prepare a communication study of an organization,
including an analysis of the external perception of one’s company or product.
By way of an independent analysis, we will pinpoint both negative and positive examples, and possible ways to deal with everyday challenges.

Some of the most frequently used tools are as follows:
• Communication plans and tactics
• Monthly press clippings & analysis
• Media mailing lists
• Press releases, media briefings & interviews
• Preparation for public speaking engagements
• Press conferences and events
• Social media

Community Relations

Communicate with the local community on time and in a way that suits you best.
Plan and announce a possible environmental impact or restructuring process before it slides into an uncontrollable crisis. Anticipate your key stakeholder´s positions and agendas because they are often one of your most important assets (or burdens).

Prepare the local community and stakeholders for future moves and control their reactions throughout:
• Action plans & strategies
• Meeting the community´s leaders and representatives
• Special events and gatherings
• Preparing bulletins, leaflets and other periodicals
• Social media

Crisis Management

No matter how hard you try, crises are sometimes unavoidable.
Work-related accidents, problems with liquidity and firings, pollution…These are all unfortunate situations in which you are required to defend yourself and explain your actions and attitudes.

Some of the most frequently used actions are as follows:
• Crisis analysis and evaluation, predicting the target audiences’ reactions
Preparation of the crisis resolution strategy
• Preparation and execution of the step-by-step crisis management plan including the following:
– Preparing a mailing list and a media plan
– Contacting both the public and the media: press releases, briefings and press conferences
– Local community and target audience communication plan
– Communication with the key stakeholders (employees/unions, suppliers, regulatory agencies…)
– Revision of the actions taken and identification of the main success points for future use

Internal Communication

The building of the image of a successful company begins within the company itself.

The degree of your employees´ job satisfaction and motivation is a measurable and continuous process that you can influence:
• How often and in what way do you communicate with your employees?
• How do you convey important messages and motivate your employees to achieve the goals?

The INTERNAL COMMUNICATION program can provide answers to most of the challenges of the modern business communication. Whether your company consists of 50 or 500 employees, Teneo will recommend quality, easy-to-manage and cost-effective models of internal communication.
The service includes the following:
• Creating an internal communication plan
• Preparing and publishing newsletters, flyers and other publications

• Execution of the events intended to strengthen the corporate identity
