Crisis management on digital platforms

In the age of social media, even the slightest predicament can quickly snowball into a global PR issue. A sound social media crisis management plan can help you to be prepared and respond quickly and effectively to these situations.

Join John Deveney as he details the steps your brand should take to lay the foundation for a strong social media crisis management strategy. Revisit recent social media flops and the lessons we learned from them.
