Real-Time Solutions for Effective Response
Dec. 7, 2015 | Course | New York, N.Y.

Categories: Crisis & Reputation, Social Media, Techniques & Tactics

Crisis communications is becoming more complicated and difficult. Where crisis communications was once perceived as talking to the media after an event happened, today’s crisis audiences have expanded to include employees, customers, stakeholders and social media users. At the same time, channels have expanded from traditional news conferences to include e-mail blasts, Web posts, social media notification and more. Today’s PR professionals must invest more time than ever in the planning stage in order to deliver proper communications after the event goes public.
