Event Overview

Alice Weightman CMPRCA, CEO of The Work Crowd & Chairman of the PRCA Independent Consultant’s Group will lead this masterclass on how to manage crisis communications in the digital age.

With a shift from the 24-hour news cycle to the ‘nanosecond news cycle’ where everyone with a mobile phone is a potential journalist waiting to break and share your news, companies need to be more prepared than ever to both mitigate and manage a crisis.

So in this wild west of digital media, how as an Independent Consultant can you make sure you are equipped with the skills and expertise to both advise your clients, potentially mitigate and successfully manage a crisis
