How to be crisis ready not crisis prone….a workshop on crisis communication planning

How to be crisis ready not crisis prone….a workshop on crisis communication planning
Wednesday, April 25, 2018 - 12:30 to 14:00
CO3 Offices (34 Shaftesbury Square, Belfast, BT2 7DB)

A crisis is the time when your organisation will be most under threat and therefore the time when you must hold most closely to your vision, mission and values.  Effective communication is central to helping you meet the crisis challenge and this CO3 session with specialist insurer Ecclesiastical and their partner, Teneo,  will share details of how best to communicate in a crisis.  The session will focus on the principles of predicting where an issue will arise, preparing for an issue and then successfully responding to an issue.

Our experience and research highlights that the organisations that recover most effectively are those that have an embedded culture of risk awareness combined with regular, comprehensive preparation for issues response. To help you prepare for a crisis we will use the session to focus on:

  1. Reviewing the risks in your organisation
  2. Crisis communication plan creation
  3. Crisis communication readiness and response through practice and preparation
