- Response & Relief
Register in advance for this session.
What happens when your organization becomes the headline? What if the media wants to do a story about your organization’s mission? What should you do if you’re interviewed? What information should be public?
Join retired emergency manager and public information officer, Lynn Brown, as he discusses best practices when talking to the media on behalf of your organization. In this free training, you will learn how to best strategize disclosing information to the public about your organization, employees, or business partners. Knowing how to deliver the right message at the right time is critical in crafting your organization’s relationship with its clients and the community it serves. You will learn to respond to media inquiries, take action to control rumors, and how to address the communication needs of special needs and non-English speaking individuals. Participants will have the opportunity to craft a statement and practice being interviewed.
