Emergency! Communicating in a crisis.

Posted on September 13, 2016 by


For the first time, as part of Leeds Business Week (17th – 21st October), we will be making a huge drama out of a crisis as we run a live, real-time, crisis communications workshop.

Aimed at anybody responsible for dealing with crisis communications, from MD and COO level to communications professionals, this hands-on training exercise will test whether you are truly prepared to handle communications in the digital age.

Run by the highly-experienced crisis management team at Aberfield Communications, the session will immerse you into a typical crisis scenario and take you from the moment a story breaks, including initial response behaviour, to best practice in media and social media handling, before moving onto crisis resolution and recovery… in just two hours.

Everyone attending will have a role to play, so you’ll need to roll your sleeves up and come prepared to learn the operational and procedural skills necessary to successfully navigate the toughest of communications challenges.

The event will be taking place on Thursday 20th October from 10:00am until 12:00pm at 6 Queen Street, Leeds, LS1 2TW.

If you think you’re up to the challenge, you can register here. Numbers are strictly limited.
