Even before the Trump era, news was breaking first on social media, with traditional media sweeping Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube for leads. Whether your organization is immersed in crisis or dealing with a hot-button issue, your news can easily “go viral.”
Since it takes a lifetime to build a reputation and only a few seconds to destroy one, “managing the message” is a necessary skill-set. This fast-paced talk by veteran crisis management and communications specialist Stephanie York, from Hennes Communications in Cleveland, Ohio, will focus on a highly strategic approach to communicating during a wide variety of situations.
Methods for establishing and maintaining “control of the message”
Serve the needs of your stakeholders
Move your message forward or mount a defense against a sudden onslaught from traditional or social media
