Your Emergency Kit for an Online Crisis

If your organization hasn’t thought about how to deal with a potential online crisis then it’s time you did. Every organization faces issues that have the potential to ‘catch fire’ on social and other media platforms. Those prepared with a crisis communications strategy will be more successful in limiting reputational damage, and potentially turning the crisis into an opportunity.

This session provides a step-by-step process for preparing your organization to communicate during a crisis. Recent organizational crises examples will also be discussed.

Session attendees will learn how to customize a crisis communications plan for your organization to ensure that:

  • Potential issues and crises are anticipated
  • Your team is trained in dealing with a crisis
  • There is a simple crisis procedure to follow
  • No stakeholder is forgotten in the crisis response
  • The organization has a post-crisis plan to recover, learn and look for opportunities
