When Disaster Strikes: How to Effectively Manage A PR Crisis
Thursday, November 7, 2013 from 11:30 AM to 1:15 PM (HST)
Unforeseen events ranging from a natural disaster to a surge of negative press have the potential to disrupt communications campaigns, affecting your company or client's branding and credibility. The desire to quickly get information to the public when they demand it most can lead to costly errors when improperly handled. Skillful crisis management can reap positive results for any organization.
This session will better equip you to:
• Develop media strategies for crisis management
• Sucessfully navigate print, broadcast and online communication platforms
• Prevent the dissemination of disinformation/misinformation
• Stay on point and on message in times of uncertainty
