Platinum Leadership Series | Crisis Communication Training: Taking That Dreaded Call

Brand South Australia is pleased to present an exclusive and interactive crisis communication workshop not to be missed.

Every business is exposed to risk whether it’s a natural disaster, data breach, inappropriate staff behaviour or work accident.


This hands-on workshop will help equip members to best respond to the phone call no-one wants to receive.

Facilitated by communication and issues management specialists Corporate Conversation, the 3 hour workshop will cover:


·         Real life interactive crisis scenarios and exercises
·         Risk identification and assessment
·         External and internal stakeholder communication
·         Crisis key message development
·         Media engagement
·         Social media engagement
·         Pro-active steps to take now

·         Critical first steps to take when the call comes in


Aimed at CEOs, COOs, Senior Managers, Board Directors, Marketing and Brand Managers, and HR Managers – anyone likely to be involved in your crisis response team.

This is an ideal opportunity to benchmark, test and improve your crisis communication mindset, skillset, strategy and response.

This Brand South Australia workshop follows on from the popular crisis planning event held last year but takes it to the next level by incorporating live team ‘mock’ crisis scenarios for attendees to participate in and sharpen their skills.
