If your organisation hits the headlines for the wrong reasons, how you respond, support and communicate with stakeholders and the public in the earliest hours can be critical. Being well prepared, thinking through risks and considering your decision making processes and priorities can make all the difference.
In this meeting, we heard from comms professionals who’ve dealt with disaster and come out the other side, shared our own experiences and discussed how to make sure our organisations can be ready to deal with a crisis.
