Crisis Management and Communications for Construction Executives
In this webinar series, participants will prepare to maintain trust and ensure the successful continuation of the organization as they make statements to the media, answer to stakeholders, contact family members, and talk to customers. This isn’t something they can delegate. That’s what this TWO-PART WEBINAR is about. • Webinar #1: Before a crisis • Webinar #2: During and after a crisis This is more than a webinar series. It’s an ongoing learning experience where they’ll learn from me – and each other – in the webinar room and afterward. It includes three short follow-up videos to reinforce learning, answer questions not addressed during the session, and introduce new ideas to help them get the job done.
