Crisis communication & Simulation Training

Crisis communication training

Crisis Communication Training - 5/10 CPD points

We’ve seen the negative headlines all too often. This course helps prevent issues becoming crises and enables a faster response time if they do.

How robust is your communications plan - could your organisation make a meaningful response to an issue within 15 minutes?

Does your CEO/Chair/Vice Chancellor think, “Comms is across all of this…?”

Worse, are you about to allow your two-page press statement to be the stand-alone spokesperson for your organisation?

We don't mind betting there are talented spokespeople at your disposal, who just need a little more support or coaching. And that's where we can help.

No organisation wants to be trending on social media for all the wrong reasons.

Reputational issues can often be the biggest threat to business continuity when a crisis strikes. Mentor has nearly 20 years' experience in supporting our clients with crisis PR when they find themselves in potentially threatening situations.
