A Crisis Playbook: Your team needs a game plan!
Description: This year has had more examples of crisis communications than we care to look back on. Looking ahead, does your business, client(s) or nonprofit have a crisis plan in place? During the January FPRA luncheon, you’ll learn about the types of crises, worst/best case scenarios, and best practices for your crisis communications game plan and execution.
We will uncover some potential roadblocks to executing your plan and ways you might overcome those hurdles. Most importantly, we’ll dive into recent local examples and share some lessons learned, since every crisis needs a Monday morning quarterback!
