Crisis Communications - A Beginner's Guide

It’s that work moment that we dread the most - a crisis hits and you’re in the thick of it. And, let’s face it, that moment will come.

But some good preparation, and communications, can help you come out the other side in the best shape possible.

The session will focus on communicating during a crisis, and cover:

1. Understanding the types and stages of a crisis

2. The importance of preparation (and how to)

3. Communicating under fire

4. Emerging, learning and rebuilding

The session will include examples of good and poor practice; practical tips; and next steps recommendations.
