Crisis Communications: What You Do Before is Just as Important as What You Do During

Setting a strategy in place before crisis strikes can save your brand.

Navigate the Waters of Reputational Repair: The Steps to Effective Crisis Communications Planning

Webinar, Wednesday, November 20, 2013, 1:00PM ET

TORONTO, Nov. 14, 2013 /CNW/ - A crisis can catch any brand off-guard, especially as social media offers the opportunity for missteps to go viral and snowball beyond anything that would be expected. A lot of attention is paid to how companies react and conduct themselves during a crisis; effective communications during this time can minimize reputation-loss and earn back respect, if not completely turn the tide in a brand's favor, while a poor reaction can take months, if not longer, to recover from or live on as an easy target for criticism.
