3.24.22 NewsWhip


Reimagining Crisis and Reputation Management

Crisis and reputation management continue to be an integral part of the communications function – and among its most important tasks in the eyes of the C-suite. While so much has changed about the communications discipline in recent years, the expectations of the industry have expanded quite rapidly.

The directive to monitor for opportunities and respond to crises is essentially the same, but the platform knowledge, the skills, and the tactics needed to optimally succeed are different in 2022 than they have ever been. Traditional playbooks are at best outdated, while the consequences of getting it wrong are severe, with every key stakeholder watching with unprecedented scrutiny.

NewsWhip, in partnership with PRWeek, will also discuss the results from their recently completed 2022 crisis and reputation study – approximately 200 senior-level communications professionals were surveyed on the triumphs and tribulations of the collective discipline. To help us interpret the meaning behind the findings, some of the most well-versed leaders in the industry will share their valuable counsel and join us in exploring the most pressing needs.

During these 60 minutes, you’ll learn about:

-How to best use real-time data to identify a crisis, including the warning signs of an escalating situation.

-The various types of misinformation, the threats they pose, and how to best combat them.

-How to predict the stories and topics that will have the biggest impact on your brand’s reputation more quickly and accurately than ever.

-Supercharging your media monitoring capabilities, including pinpointing the media members who are driving interactions with your content.
