Complete Crisis Communications – How to lead when things go wrong
Being able to communicate clearly and convincingly in a crisis has always been vital for leaders and organisations.
The COVID-19 pandemic showed us that getting things right under pressure can often be a matter of life and death. In this interactive course, we look at a range of real-life crisis scenarios and discuss how we can use successful communications techniques in our own work.
At the Civil Service College, we tailor our courses to each attendee’s role and organisation, ensuring that each delegate gets the most out of the training. Our courses and trainers are continuously updated and evaluated to ensure that we are always delivering the best service possible.
Anyone who has a role, or interest, in their organisation’s communications team. And anyone with an interest in developing their resilience and coping with high-stakes, high-pressure working environments.
