Course Details

Keep cool and confident in a crisis, be prepared when a crisis strikes.

You may not have a communications team that you can call on in a crisis, but you still need to be prepared should the worst happen.

Let out Crisis Media Trainers take you through the process, helping you develop your strategy, communication documents and crisis communications plan.

How it works

We start by exploring your current plans and examining the issues that could hit you and how you should respond. We cover crisis management theory, best practice as well as examples of disastrous crisis communications.

You then work with you on planning, developing your strategy ideas, communication tools, holding statements, Q&A’s and corporate key messages.

Our aim is to help you prepare for almost every eventuality as well as help you develop a structure and set of tools to help you to minise damage and protect your reputation in a crisis.

We will also advise on any additional agency support that you may need, leaving you free to manage your business.
