While we all hope never to come face-to-face with a crisis, it is one of those inevitable things we all tackle to varying degrees during our careers.
When it comes to a crisis, the best thing a PR practitioner can do is be prepared – whether that’s thinking through a contingency plan for an event or having reactive statements ready for any launch or activation.
For inspiration and important learnings, here are a few crisis management podcasts we recommend:
- Indestructible PR Podcast – Host Molly McPherson uses current events and tested PR strategies to teach communicators how to manage crises and build an indestructible reputation.
- Crisis What Crisis? – Strategic advisor Andy Coulson talks to both survivors of crisis and professionals working in the field of crisis to draw from their experiences and learnings to ultimately pull together the ultimate survival kit for others.
- Stop Talking – This podcast digs deep into crisis PR management with U.S.-based PR veteran Sara Brady. A cheeky name, Sarah called the podcast “Stop Talking” because talking too much in the heat of the moment is often what gets people in trouble.
At Allison+Partners, we firmly believe corporate reputation is one of the most valuable resources of any large or small company, and today’s interconnected world has created an operating environment that requires companies to ensure reputational risk programmes are embedded in common risk management frameworks.
