Any crisis management expert will tell you that it’s not a question of if your brand will face a crisis, it’s a question of when. Years of hard work in building and shaping your brand’s reputation can be undone in a matter of hours, even moments, by a variety of causes: a lapse in judgment on social media, embittered employees, catastrophic product failures, lawsuits, natural disasters, criminal investigations, boycotts and more.
Join PR News on March 12 at the National Press Club in Washington, DC for this intensive half-day workshop in which our crisis management experts will share their experiences and insights in how to develop and execute a strategy that will help your organization or clients weather inevitable crises.
In a series of in-depth sessions, you will learn the essential building blocks of developing a crisis management plan that fits your business, how to use social media outlets such as Facebook and Twitter as your first lines of communication and how to assess and repair the damage when the smoke clears.
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn the skills you need to guide your organization’s communications strategy through its next emergency. Also, be sure to join PR News for the CSR and Nonprofit PR Awards Luncheon, taking place later in the day at the National Press Club.
