Municipalities must be prepared for all the usual potential “business” crises, but they also face the unique task of being responsible for the safety and well-being of their residents, especially when disaster strikes.
 
Why you should attend
 
By attending this conference you will have the opportunity to explore the key lessons from the past year of Municipal emergencies & crises in Canada, gain practical guidance to improve your emergency & crisis communications strategy and explore new ideas with our expert panel.
 
This conference will focus on the three essential requirements for having an effective Emergency & Crisis Communications Strategy:
 
Crisis Preparation: Identifying risks, developing a plan, creating a team and rehearsing your approach
 
Crisis Management: Communicating successfully both internally and externally
 
Crisis Recovery: Handling the media, regaining trust and evaluating your response
 
You will hear from the latest case studies and be provided with tips, advice and the tools you need to ensure your organization is well-equipped to communicate clearer during any crisis.
 
By the end of the conference, you will have an up-to-date understanding of:
•Best practices in emergency & crisis communication strategies
•Working with the media
•Giving clear and consistent messages during a crisis
•Maintaining a good reputation throughout and after a crisis
•How to use social media platforms effectively
 
This is a unique opportunity to exchange ideas with your peers and learn how others from across a range of public, private, and not-for-profit organizations deal with crises and gain practical guidance to implement in your setting.
 
You’ll also learn how to:
•Focus your plan on the most relevant risks and audiences
•Get your spokespeople ready to deal with tough questions
•Tee up key stakeholders as spokespeople and allies
•Avoid mistakes that will guarantee a negative reaction
•Ensure your organization puts its best values front and center no matter what
