Surviving a Crisis and Choosing the Right Spokesperson

Sponsored by IABC Philadelphia and PRSA Philadelphia 

IABC___PRSA_logos_combined.jpgA crisis can strike at any time and destroy your company’s operations, brand reputation and community goodwill. It could happen in a flash or bubble under the surface for months or years. Either way, you need to be prepared in advance to quickly and accurately communicate about what happened, why it happened and what you are doing to address it.

Having a crisis communication team in place is essential to your company’s survival. Designating the right spokesperson to handle public-facing communications is equally vital. On the other hand, the wrong person could exacerbate the situation 


The right person is not a one-size-fits all solution. Each crisis requires a different touch. Media trainer, and Emmy Award-winning former TV news anchor Kerry Barrett will walk you through everything you need to consider when selecting a spokesperson for your brand or client.
