No Business Continuity Program is Complete Without an Effective Crisis Communications Plan

No business continuity program is complete without a thorough and effective crisis communications plan that ensures you can quickly communicate with employees, customers, and other stakeholders.

Most companies use automated notification software tools to communicate with their people during a crisis event and to manage critical next steps, but an emergency communications tool is only as good as the program, people and data that supports it. Too many times systems do not work as planned.

This session will review strategies you may employ to ensure your systems and processes are successful, as well as cover a detailed case study where Jamie utilized these strategies to overhaul a crisis management program and successfully prove ROI to key stakeholders.
