Do your research. See how other like for like brands managed their crisis, understand what worked, what didn’t, and what would resonate with your audience and peers.

Plan ahead. Think about the type of crisis scenarios that could hit your organisation, and plan your response. Even test your response with colleagues to see how it could play out.

Build the trust. You’re working with journalists every day – build up trust with the key contacts in your sector when it comes to journalism so you’re confident of good communication with them when it comes to crisis time.
