October Luncheon
PR Under Pressure: Modern Crisis Communications Best Practices
Thursday, October 26, 2017
12 to 1 p.m.

In the last year, we’ve witnessed some of the biggest PR and communications crises, ranging from Equifax’s massive 145.5 million-person data breach to the devastation of Hurricane Harvey and other natural disasters. Organizations from many sectors responded in answer to these widespread crises, but some struggled more than others to get the right message and information out to the public. How can communicators plan for such internal and external disasters? What is the right way to address the public and stakeholders? Who’s involved in the planning and execution of a crisis communications strategy?

Join PRSA Austin for these answers to these questions, and learn best practices for responding in times of your own or external crises, developing and executing on crisis communications strategy, and how to appropriately work with media to make sure your publics have the accurate information they need, when they need it.
