Sinclair Conference Center Room 131


When it comes to crisis, it’s not a matter of IF it will happen to you as a communicator, it’s a matter of WHEN. Are you prepared and ready?

Join us for a very special half-day event centered on learning how to be prepared to communicate in a crisis.

The day will include:

  • PR pro panel on the Memorial Day tornadoes: Hear from a panel of PR pros from local organizations who had to rally together and develop communication after the tornadoes hit our area.
  • Media panel: Hear from local media on what it’s like to cover a crisis, how they choose what stories to cover during a crisis and how you can build a better pitch about your organization when a crisis hits.
  • Table top exercise: Take part in a table top exercise with your colleagues and peers on how to respond in a crisis. You will be taken through a hypothetical crisis situation and given questions to talk through with your table on how you would respond. The goal of the exercise is to give you plenty of talking points and ideas to take back to your place of business so you can be more prepared when a crisis hits.

Ticket price includes parking pass, coffee and lunch.
