    As PR pros, we can spot a brand crisis from a mile away. Sometimes they’re funny. More often, they’re not. We know the hard and fast rules of crisis comms – plan ahead, be simple yet strategic, choose your platform wisely. Now, we’re taking a deeper dive into crisis communications with a panel of experts who have gracefully led their clients or organizations through tricky times. Each expert will present a brief case study highlighting details (as many as they can share) about how they navigated the crisis and offer a few key takeaways. A 20-minute Q&A with our experts will round out the event.
