Effective crisis communication can help organizations maintain trust, inspire consumer confidence and build competitive advantage. Poorly handled crises in business, government and nonprofits show how ineffective crisis communication can set an organization back significantly. PRSA’s Crisis Communication online training will equip management-level communicators with best practices in industry perspectives by sharing resources and ideas, and discussing various crises.

Social media is a two-edged sword in a crisis. It can provide an early warning, but it also can take on a life of its own. There is both an art and a science to using social media effectively in a crisis. The key is to understand the positive and negative dynamics of social media in crisis, and to use it as part of larger crisis management/crisis response strategy.
