No organization is immune from the dangers of a reputation-damaging crisis, and it's your job as a PR pro to lead the charge when your brand is in the crosshairs. Join PR News as we tear the latest headlines from the front pages and tweets from the social Web and show you how to manage a crisis in today's real-time, rapid-fire digital echo chamber.
Our panel of crisis management experts will draw upon recent, notable crises as well as their own experience to help you create a plan to monitor negative comments and potentially damaging news across digital channels; have team roles in place in advance of a crisis; determine how quickly an organization should respond to particular kinds of crises; create a command chain to quickly develop a messaging strategy; manage social media channels; measure the effects of a crisis on brand reputation; and more.
The ROI of public relations is never more obvious than when a crisis threatens an organization—don't miss this opportunity to become the go-to crisis expert on your team.
