CRISIS COMMUNICATIONS
Anticipating a crisis is part of every public relations professional’s job. To that end, every organization should have an up-to-date crisis commu-
nication plan in the hands of a clearly identified and prepared crisis communication team — internal public relations staff, management repre-
sentatives and outside public relations counsel where appropriate. This plan should be aligned to your company’s operations crisis plan. A
crisis can either be disastrous to your organization, or if properly handled, can open up a myriad of new opportunities. Through this high im-
pact workshop, we will teach you how to weather the storm and coming out from it ‘dry’!
