Overview:

If a crisis hit your organisation and you were hitting the headlines – what would you do? Are you prepared? How you respond in a crisis is critical. Burying your head in the sand is not an option. You can’t just send out one of team, like a lamb to the slaughter, to talk to the media. Now is the time to make a plan. This is an interactive and practical ‘real life’ scenario course tailored for your communications team and senior executives. We spend the day formulating your pre-crisis action plan and teaching the golden rules when it comes to crisis management. Your teams will be filmed as they are put through a crisis situation. They will have to conduct interviews and write media responses and social media posts as the story develops. We will require a planning meeting with you in advance of the session so the scenario is bespoke to your organisation.

Whether you are on the stage as much as you are off it or if presenting in front of a crowd is a new requirement for your role, this course is relevant as it is tailored to your needs. It is important that we are continually improving our performances both externally and internally, both on the stage and in the boardroom. To ensure that we have a true picture of each delegate’s strengths and weaknesses we ask each of them to prepare in advance a 5-minute PowerPoint (or alternative) presentation that they will deliver in front of our trainers and to the rest of the group. Their strengths and weaknesses are analysed and individual feedback is given. Our trainers also teach presentation skills and techniques that improve and enhance performance when public speaking. Topics include overcoming nerves and addressing bad/nervous habits. All sessions are recorded and reviewed and a USB of each individual delegate’s recordings is provided at the end of the day.
