Curley Company Senior Vice President and Director of Crisis, Greg Wilson, discussed how trade associations can prepare for when a crisis hits — and how to best handle the moment in real time.
“Create a crisis communications plan and use your peacetime really wisely,” Greg shares. Gather a crisis team and think through possible scenarios, identifying how your organization is best prepared to tackle each situation.
When a crisis does hit, communicate honestly, authentically and frequently. Stakeholders are looking to you to stay true to your brand values and to provide updates often.
