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.

What’s the secret to landing feature coverage on Philadelphia’s TV and radio stations? Broadcast placements are highly coveted but securing them is increasingly difficult. How are broadcast needs changing? Who should you approach? What does it take to pique a reporter’s interest? What makes a strong story—and what makes pitching broadcast different from packaging story pitches for other news mediums?
PPRA is excited to bring you an outstanding panel of journalists, producers and editors to give you the inside scoop.
