One thing we know for sure is that a crisis will happen.

And when it happens, you’ll be called upon as a communicator for guidance. Are you prepared?

The important thing is that when a crisis happens, communicators are ready to react in a way that’s fast and smart.

Our discussion focuses on how communicators can bring the right people together and create a path forward that mitigates legal risk and protects the brand during times of crisis.

Rick Alcántara and Audra Hession, presidents of IABC Philadelphia and IABC NYC/Tristate, will lead the discussion. Joining the conversation are:

  • What communicators can do to be better prepared
  • How to work with the variety of players involved
