Learn how to prepare and manage social media channels in a communications crisis

Friday 29th November 1:30pm – 4pm The Priory Rooms, Bull St, B4 6AF £35

Develop a communications crisis plan and give yourself peace of mind by being prepared.

During a comms crisis, what you do, what you say and how you react can have a huge impact on your business.

Let’s hope you will never need these skills, but should you do, you will save time, energy, money and reputation damage by having a strong system in place.

What we will cover on this half day workshop

Planning for a communications crisis

Performing risk assessments & checking for vulnerabilities

Creating a team and contacts

How to use social media to get information out during a comms crisis

Using social media monitoring tools during a crisis

We’ll also look at case studies that have been winners, and those that could have done better!

In a comms crisis it’s easy to ‘shut down’ and try and ignore what is going on. This option just won’t work!

When you have a plan, it’s going to be so much easier to take empowered action to:

Step up to the challenge ahead

Show that you are acknowledging the situation

Take control and show your leadership in the situation

Get the confidence that being prepared will bring to you and your business.
