Managing communications in crisis: Discovery Channel's experience

The September 1 hostage-taking at the Discovery Channel headquarters--and how communications was managed during that crisis--will be the subject of an IABC Washington breakfast meeting later this month.  And in the wake of the Tucson shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and many of her constituents and staff, I'm expecting this session to attract even more attention.  I'll be attending and covering it to share insights with you, as many of my clients have asked for trainings and strategies that anticipate similar crises.

If you have questions you want me to ask at the session, leave them in the comments or email me at info[at]dontgetcaught[dot]biz. Local to the Washington area?  I'd be glad to register you as my guest at a reduced rate (that's only if you are not already an IABC member) -- just let me know. And if you haven't dusted off and reviewed your organization's crisis communications plan, it's a good week to do so, to make sure it encompasses recent lessons learned.
