Crises are inevitable. Nearly 70 percent of organizations have experienced a crisis in the past four years, according to PwC—yet only 10 percent say they’re prepared for one.

Don’t bury your head—and career—in the sand. Join this immersive training event to create or revamp your crisis playbook and bring your crisis communications skills up to speed. You’ll leave with the latest techniques and templates you need to handle any crisis—from shortfalls and Trump tweets to natural disasters, data breaches and more.

This is one event you can’t afford to miss if you want to protect your organization’s reputation, customers, employees and bottom line at crunch time.

You’ll learn:

  • How to crisis-proof your organization (and career)
  • The essential elements of a foolproof crisis plan
  • The anatomy of a crisis—and how to respond at each phase
  • New ways to prevent and contain social media attacks
  • How to prep staff for media calls and crisis interviews
  • A regimen to restore reputation when the dust settles

Come to this hands-on crisis communications and issues management event in Washington, D.C., where you’ll learn new strategies to defuse high-stakes situations in today’s rapidly changing risk landscape.
