Firehouse Restaurant

As our industry changes, our approach to crisis communications must change along with it. With the emergence of social media, “fake news,” and the 24/7 online news cycle, crisis communications best practices have evolved dramatically in recent years, and it is more important than ever for PR professionals to be prepared for crisis situations.

Join us as we hear from Quinn Bryner, director of public relations, integrations and strategy for Hershey Entertainment & Resorts Co.; and David La Torre, founder of La Torre Communications, who will share their advice on how to best prepare and execute crisis communications strategies. Quinn and Dave will also share some examples of successful – and not-so-successful – crisis communication case studies.
