How do you communicate critical information before, during and after a crisis, when the media can’t reach you and you’re holding on by a thread without electricity or other modern conveniences? Veteran “storm chaser” and crisis communications expert Gerard Braud, president and CEO, Braud Communications, shares the techniques he successfully pioneered to broadcast live to CNN and The Weather Channel when standing in hurricane flood waters with no electricity for days. Participants will walk away with the skills needed to be the communications professional of the future. Learn about:

  • The critical steps you must take on a clear sunny day to successfully communicate on your darkest day.
  • How to unlock the full potential of communicating to your audiences, with or without the media.
  • Holistic approaches to crisis communications that require the shiny and new, as well as the tried and true.

“When I lost electricity, I shifted to my iPhone, Skype and G3, taking viewers to the heart of the story. Holding the iPad and iPhone at arm's length, I offered scenes better than correspondents for The Weather Channel and CNN.”
