Fundamentals of Crisis Communication

Thursday, June 29 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm • Organized By Small Business Development Center at JCCC
Regnier Center, Room 146, 12345 College Blvd., Overland Park, KS 66210


When things go wrong is when your employees, customers and community need you most; and when it comes to crisis communications, every second counts. A well-designed crisis communication plan can determine your company's reputation and even its survival. In this one-day workshop learn how to prepare for your own worst-case scenario by 1) identifying and developing resources; 2) outlining procedures including the identification of your team and third-party partner; 3) developing an assessment and response protocol that includes the impact of social media; 4) identifying internal and external needs; 5) and developing an education plan for management and employees. Crisis communication is best planned when cooler heads can prevail, and this step-by-step course will help you do just that.
