Tips from PR Experts on Writing a Crisis Communication Plan

Earlier this week, we polled social media to find out how public relations, crisis communications, and corporate communications experts write their crisis communications plans. They have provided their tips on our social media pages, with comments ranging from gathering a team of expert PR writers, to addressing the vulnerabilities of their organization. Many followers described what they would do to respond and react to a crisis, but Gerard Braud provides a few tips on how to prepare a crisis plan before a crisis ever develops.

Now we want you to not only learn from these followers’ best practices, but continue to chime in on the discussion. What would you do differently than these subject matter experts? What strategies have worked for you in the past? What strategies have you tried that didn’t work well for your company, school, or hospital? Comment here and on our social media pages to join in.
