Crisis Communications Workshop
With online news, social media and viral communications, all businesses and organizations must be prepared with a crisis communications plan before there’s a crisis. And there’s no telling what form a crisis might take. Something that sounds trivial to you could end up being a crisis if someone in the media misconstrues the facts. Do you have a Wikipedia page? Have you read it recently? Recently we had a client have theirs hacked by a competitor. Our interactive workshop will help you think through the steps to prepare for a crisis and write a crisis communications plan. No business can afford to be caught off guard — let us help you put the steps in place for when the unthinkable happens.
