Join IABC/BC’s Internal Communications Special Interest Group (SIG) virtual session, with a focus on crisis communication strategies.

About this Event

Crises come in all shapes and sizes, and one thing that is common across them all is the crucial role of communicators in responding to them. With an extended world-wide crisis under our collective belt, we all have some experience in crisis communications, whether as a recipient or sender. In this session, let’s discuss our crisis communication experiences, what we’ve learned from them and how we may do things differently in the future.

Facilitated by Alfie Penfold, Communications Specialist, IC Thrive
