Third Sector Breakfast Briefing: Crisis Planning and Response
Charities are facing increased levels of scrutiny from the media in the wake of recent scandals, making crisis planning and response a key cause for concern.
Third Sector’s Crisis Planning and Response Breakfast Briefing will bring together experts to discuss what charities should (and should not) do during a crisis.
We are delighted to be sponsoring the event and Stuart Thomson, BDB Pitmans’ head of public affairs, will cover the following topics:
- delivering a swift response to a specific crisis in coordination with your legal team;
- guidance on balancing empathy and sincerity in response to crises with legal responsibility; and
- pre-empting the secondary effects of a crisis and being aware of the implications for staff, contracts and finances.
The bespoke event is aimed specifically at charity leaders and comms professionals.
