CRISIS COMMUNICATIONS NETWORK
We are proud to be the UK’s sole member of the Crisis Communications Network Europe (CCNE).
Through our membership of the CCNE, our clients benefit from an unrivalled and exclusive network of European crisis communications specialists who can assist with those cross-border issues that can affect international companies and organisations.
CCNE’s PR experts share similar values and ways of working, and the network guarantees that issues will be handled in each jurisdiction by a local expert with the right experience and contacts, operating to an agreed strategy.
About the CCNE
Alder is the UK representative of the network, managing PR issues and crisis communications across the whole of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. If any of our European partner agencies deals with an issue with a UK focus – or one in which UK media takes an interest – then we can act on their client’s behalf to use our local knowledge, expertise and contacts to manage the communications in the UK.
It also means that our UK clients have access to an expert network of European crisis communications agencies if necessary.
At Alder UK, we work closely with the network and meet each partner annually as part of our commitment to maintaining an elite European network of crisis consultants.

THE CCNE VALUES
We commit to protecting our clients’ reputations by sticking to the truth. This allows us to keep the promises that we make to our clients throughout the management of any issue.
A mountain in one country can be a molehill in another. We have an in-depth understanding of communicating effectively with the relevant media, politicians, influencers and public within each respective country.
We can help an organisation to prepare for and also prevent a crisis communications situation from occurring by helping its senior team fully understand the business’s vulnerabilities. This ensures that senior personnel are fully trained and prepared to respond confidently and consistently.
In times of crisis, time is of the essence. We offer swift, specialist advice to our clients here in the UK, and our participation in the CCNE allows our clients to have access to this same level of expertise across Europe if and when needed.
