Frequently asked questions
Why do I need a crisis communications plan?
We think you need to have a crisis communications plan and we hope you never have to use it! More organizations are at risk because of not being able to react quick enough to protect their brand. This is even more the situation as social media becomes a greater influence. In the event you have a crisis, activating a plan and knowing how to proceed will save precious time and help you make sure your messaging is appropriate.
Will this help me with my emergency procedures?
No. The crisis communications plan does not help you resolve actual emergencies or crisis. The plan helps you to frame how you tell people about it after the crisis, or in some scenarios, while the crisis is ongoing.
How can you make a plan for me when you don't know what I do?
Our crisis communications plan is a framework robust enough to deal with virtually any crisis, including a zombie apocolypse. Also, some of the early work in making your plan will be to look at your industry and research how others have responded when crisis occurred. We can learn a lot from what others did right and wrong.
How much work do I have to do?
The amount of work required depends on what service you choose. If you do our online course, you're in for a lot of work - but we will provide you with all the templates you need. If you come to a course in person, there will still be a lot of work, but you can bounce ideas off the instructors and fellow participants.
