A crisis can strike at any moment and can take any form. As a result - despite our best efforts - it is often difficult to plan for this eventuality, and to know exactly how to respond.

PRWeek’s Crisis Communications conference, returning for its 11th year, provides PR and communications professionals with the chance to hear first-hand how top organisations have handled major recent crises.

Playing host to a number of high-profile case studies, the conference gives delegates the unique opportunity to live through the front-line experiences of others. From planning to contingency to recovery - hear a frank account of what worked, what didn’t and how our speakers have adapted their strategies as a result.

With a key focus on how to prevent a crisis from playing out, the 2017 event will explore key planning processes and vital communication tools to ensure delegates can put their learning into action.
