Social media has changed the way we look at crisis management. There are many examples of large reputable brands going through challenging times and poorly dealing with crises, especially in the digital domain. A huge percentage of issues now start within social media platforms and spread through this space very quickly. Social media has become the preferred outlet where opinion is formed and also where a crisis is managed, in a very public manner. Therefore, if businesses and organisations have not made their crisis management plan social media compliant, it may now be ineffective and out of date.


This one day training course and workshop will teach what to do in order to create a crisis management plan that is social media compliant and effective when so exposed via online platforms and channels. It will also provide an understanding of how customers and citizens use social media to vent opinions and give feedback, as well as how organisations can respond in crisis situations, including areas such as correcting negative brand perceptions as well as removing abuse and spam content on social media platforms. Register for this training course by filling in our interest form.
