When the unthinkable happens and a reporter is suddenly on the scene wanting an interview or shooting video, anxiety and panic can take over. Learn how to successfully interact with today’s reporters, how social media changes the landscape and how to manage risk through effective and transparent communication.

This program will include case studies, discussion and video examples to prepare participants to communicate more effectively – especially when faced with a crisis.
