Our political and media environments are increasingly complex and constantly evolving. What implications does this have for how businesses communicate when they experience a crisis? Please join the San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley chapters of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) and BCW (Burson Cohn & Wolfe) as we discuss best practices in crisis communications. Whether you’re interested in a career in crisis communications or simply looking to hone your understanding of this specialty area, you’ll want to come hear from the agency leaders who have handled many of the biggest crises you’ve read about, including the Ebola outbreak, Boston Marathon bombing response, Fukushima disaster, and a number of chemical spills, oil pipeline ruptures and refinery accidents.
