A4 Risk Management and Crisis PR Response

In this workshop you will learn about common ways that leaders and organizations get into trouble such as governance, payroll taxes, and programming. Including ways that the liability from that trouble can affect people personally. We’ll then cover some ways that you can keep your organization out of trouble. Recognizing that not all trouble can be avoided, we also discuss how to manage it when it does occur. Including, learning ways (that even your lawyers will tolerate) to respond to a crisis so that stakeholders can see that you are acting appropriately.
