• Managing through the crisis. Crisis communication modus operandi; issues within crises; tools, tactics, timing. What worked, what did not? Lessons learned.

• Assessing and reporting crisis communications performance in real time; effective communication with stakeholders; showing value; building reputation during crises – the team and yours.
