Everyone swarms to bad news. The challenge is not to stop a rumor from becoming a lie, but to stop a rumor from becoming the truth. Almost everything you learn in the first 24-hours of a crisis is wrong. There are organizations and people who earn revenue from website traffic – accurate or not. Don’t let your crisis become their lead story.

In this webinar, Jim Satterfield, President and COO of Firestorm, and Firestorm Principal, Blair Neville, will discuss the four key points of crisis communication. Register Webinar Image

1. Building, Maintaining or Restoring Trust
2. Improving Knowledge and Understanding
3. Guiding and Encouraging Appropriate Attitudes, Decisions, Actions and Behaviors
