Crisis, what crisis? Why your business needs a media crisis plan and what should be in it

Tuesday, 07 July 2020
10:00 am – 11:30 am

Fact – 80 per cent of businesses that suffer a major reputational crisis go out of business within two years. Make that 90 percent if it involves a data breach.

Want to be among the 20 per cent?

Then make sure you have a step-by-step media crisis plan to protect the image and reputation of your business.

This webinar will introduce you to the basics of media crisis management including:

  • How to provide a rapid response to a crisis and a clear plan of what to do
  • Avoid the perils of lying, denying and saying ‘no comment’
  • Providing a holding statement while you investigate the details
  • Calming the crisis with accurate information and clear a way forward
  • Calculate ways to turn a negative situation into a positive one for the future

This webinar is aimed at CII members who are business owners or regional senior managers for larger companies in the financial services sector. Due to its format, only 10 spaces are available.

This webinar will take place over Zoom. The link will be available in the booking confirmation e-mail that is sent automatically when you book onto the webinar.
