Some expertise in crisis management is an essential ingredient of a PR consultant's professional armoury. But it can be a complex subject, especially when developing a crisis communications plan and dealing with the psychologies that come into play when bosses are under intense pressure and dozens of different audiences are demanding immediate information.
During more than two decades of planning for and handling a series of crises, Michael Bland has developed a ‘quick fix' training programme which helps the experienced and the inexperienced alike with a series of practical checklists. These have been tested under fire and enable the PR professional to hit the ground running.
