Crisis Communication and Management

February 21, 2017 - The Derrick Golf & Winter Club
3500 119 Street Northwest, Edmonton, Alberta T6J 5P5

Communication is easy when things are going well. But have you thought about how your organization would communicate and manage in a crisis situation? While not all crises are as dramatic as the wildfires in Northern Alberta, almost every organization will have a time when things have not gone the way you’ve anticipated.

Come join us for a panel discussion and pick up tips about what you need to do to plan for communicating during a crisis and managing your organization safely through to the other side.

Want some starter tips?

  1. Protect and respect people first – manage communications second
  2. ‘No comment’ is permission for media to fill in the blanks themselves
  3. Risk assessment is the first step to crisis management
