We’re excited! This webinar is a Preview Panel Discussion with key presenters for this year’s third annual 2013 International Crisis & Risk Communication (ICRC) Conference at the University of Central Florida (Orlando). The Conference will explore crisis and risk communication focusing on the 2013 theme: Rethinking Media.
Gain a sneak peek with Robert C. Chandler, Ph.D., Director Nicholson School of Communication, Firestorm’s Jim Satterfield, and other world-class professionals and academics, including Dr. W. Timothy Coombs. W. Timothy Coombs, PhD, Purdue University, is a full professor in the Nicholson School of Communication at the University of Central Florida. He is the 2002 recipient of the Jackson, Jackson & Wagner Behavioral Science Prize from the Public Relations Society of America for his crisis research, which led to the development and testing of the Situational Crisis Communication Theory (SCCT). SCCT provides recommendations about how crisis managers should respond to crises by evaluating key elements of the crisis situation. Dr. Coombs has published widely in the areas of crisis management and preparedness, including a number of journal articles and book chapters. His research includes the award-winning book Ongoing Crisis Communication as well as Code Red in the Boardroom: Crisis Management as Organizational DNA
We’ll present an overview of key topics and considerations including Rules for Social Media Crises and Getting the Most from Media During a Crisis. The conference itself is your chance to learn, interact, question, network, and collaborate with leading experts as you join them in sharing useful insights.
Special features of the 2013 ICRC Conference include members from the Seminole EOC Team who handled the Sanford, Florida (Trayvon Martin-George Zimmerman) worldwide media event. There will also be a hands-on interactive “Case Study Live” table top simulation on crisis communication with the team from Firestorm.
