Roles and Responsibilities of Chairs and Trustees in Responding to a Crisis

Thursday, September 28, 2017 - 17:30 to 19:00
CO3 Offices, 34 Shaftesbury Square, Belfast, BT2 7DB

If and when a crisis hits, time is the enemy, not the media. You must respond quickly, yet carefully. While we can’t predict most crises, you can take important steps in advance to be as prepared as possible. This session, facilitated by PR Consultant Nick Garbutt, will address the most crucial steps to take during a crisis including the balancing act of when, what and how to communicate in crisis times. Managing the media can be difficult and create more stress to an already stressful time. We will look at proven management techniques and communication guidelines that will help you. A crisis will eventually go away. HOW it goes away is what matters.
