Organizations unite in their commitment to patients, healthcare professionals and other actors in the sector. The health industry is an important contributor, whether through services, medical equipment, medicines or technology. For organizations and actors, it is about coming up with good solutions and important input. It is crucial that their voices be heard in both formal and informal decision-making processes.

Several advisers at First House have experience from the major Norwegian media houses. Others have even been involved in cases that have received media attention. This enables us to quickly and accurately analyse a media situation and enable the client to handle the opportunities and challenges that the situation entails.
Politics sets the conditions for most businesses. Politically decreed framework conditions could be an obstacle, but can also create new opportunities.
No two crises are alike. Some start with an accident, some with an anonymous warning about corruption, and others with frustrated clients in social media or by a reporter calling. Whatever the situation, our experience is that leaders who have a plan for dealing with incidents, who have practiced dealing with the unexpected and who are capable of communicating well, often emerge unscathed from the crisis.
Communication is one of the leader's most important tools. Good communication shapes the culture of the business, influences attitudes and triggers actions that bring the business forward. Without communication tailored for each target group, even the best strategies remain merely plans on a piece of paper.
Owners, investors and lenders want predictability and good information about anything that could affect their business and the value of an investment. Both the capital markets and the authorities are making ever greater demands for information.
First House assists with long-term positioning and reputation building of companies, people, products, brands and ideas.
We offer highly qualified interim managers for hire, both short-term project assignments and for longer periods.
