This month’s question stems from a scenario we heard about recently. A crisis communicator entered a potential crisis situation. The crisis pro didn’t know the company. He discovered it lacked a crisis communication plan. In addition, it did not have PR pros or media relations personnel on staff.
The respondent this month is Myra Oppel, APR, partner, Copperfield Advisory, who teaches crisis communication in the School of Professional Studies’ Strategic Communication master’s program at Columbia University. Her response was edited for space and clarity.
