The stakes are seldom higher, or the risks greater, for an executive and his or her company than testifying before a legislative or regulatory body. Millions of dollars are often at stake, along with the company’s reputation and the executive’s future.
Virgil Scudder & Associates has prepared executives for successful testimony before some of the toughest Congressional hearings, including those on food contamination that resulted in fatalities. We have prepared scientists and company leaders for testimony before the FDA which resulted in over-the counter sales for various prescription drugs, and the approval of the Plan B “morning after” contraceptive.
We work closely with a company’s legal staff, public relations team, and top management to be sure that all objectives are achieved and the company’s positions are presented in the best light.
