Join Crystal to learn tips from a marketing perspective on how to help stabilize and de-escalate a crisis and to prevail in the court of public opinion. The goal in any crisis is to protect a reputation, and sustain credibility—not just for today, but also for the next move. Rainy days are a given, but by mastering a few skills, you can weather the next PR storm. She will cover:
- How marketers can provide high value during a PR crisis. Marketers are usually the most informed on where potential hidden bombs are and potential remedies, yet rarely consulted. Learn how to identify vulnerabilities and assets.
- Tips for staying on message, even when it hurts. There are always ways to stay engaged, and ways to get legal counsel on your side.
- Storm cleanup. It’s easy for smoldering flame to ignite into a new crisis if you market too hard too early. Find out the safe ways to re-start business development and promotional efforts after a crisis.
