Given recent events, it is evident that crisis situations can make or break a company’s reputation. Effective planning before, during and after a crisis is critical. Managing the issues so they never grow into crises is something a company must tend to everyday. Pat will identify the most frequent mistakes companies make in managing crisis communications and share strategies for avoiding these all-too-common pitfalls.

Three key points from Pat’s talk:

  • How improperly managed crises can affect any size company
  • What a company can do to prevent a crisis from negatively affecting them
  • Top steps to take if a crisis occurs

Don’t miss this great presentation, beautiful golf course views, fabulous lunch, fun networking, and opportunities to learn and grow. We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday October 4th!
