Crisis Communications Webinar

Craft a Crisis Plan for High-Speed News Cycles


On-demand webinars are available for one year after the live webcast.

What lessons can we learn from recent events, such as the PR crisis faced by United Airlines in early April? Join PR News & NetBase to learn how to prepare your organization for any crisis—and how to not just survive but thrive in the aftermath.

Nearly half of all organizations make the mistake of not planning for a crisis, according to a PR News/Nasdaq survey. Yet, as every veteran communicator knows, upheaval is a question of when, not if. And in an age when communications travel at light-speed, a brand’s reputation that took decades to build can be destroyed at a moment’s notice. From threats that touch nearly every firm—such as a cyber breach—to the possibility of being tweeted at by the president, crises must be anticipated before they can be diffused.

What digital assets does an organization need to have ready to deploy at a moment’s notice? How can an organization use data to keep a finger on the pulse of its online reputation? In this webinar, crisis experts will take a case-study approach to illustrate how to shift an organization to a “when” crisis mind-set instead of an “if” mind-set.
