Crisis Management is an intensive and engaging 1-day programme designed for participants to have a good grasp about crisis management as well as social media management. The ability to communicate a response or message effectively is no doubt a crucial skill to possess for any individual in a business environment. It is one that can make or break a career. The same can be said for an organisation – be it Small and Medium Enterprise or Multinational Corporations.

While a meticulous Crisis Management plan is an essential Public Relations staple for absolutely any company today, the communication element within that plan is more often than not said to be its backbone. And for good reason too.

Present day crisis communication has evolved tremendously from what it used to be ten, five, and even as recent as three years ago. A plethora of communication channels exist today which have opened up two-way conversations between businesses and consumers to an extent that were unimaginable a decade ago. Naturally, a good crisis communication plan needs to follow suit to remain relevant; and more importantly, effective.

In recent years, Social Media has certainly accorded a new found power to consumers, and businesses thus far have found it difficult to keep up. The main reason is simply because traditional business methods of communication do not work on these platforms. Thus, while this chapter does look into effective crisis communication through traditional media channels as well; we delve deeper and focus on how the era of digital media has opened up a whole new stage – that can be even more unforgiving than any other forms of media outlets industry veterans have encountered in the past.
