The Brand Ambassadors - The Ultimate Crisis

The changing technology is changing the way we communicate during a crisis.

In recent years, communities have gone from relying on the TV and radio civil defense alerts to emergency alerts via email, SMS text alerts, robo calls from law enforcement, social media and corporate digital signage alerts in almost real-time.

The Brand Ambassadors - Crisis Communication Part Two

We're continuing the discussion from last week's crisis communication show and raising the stakes.

Join Merritt and guest host Jared Hamilton as they interview Tim O'Leary, who ran media operations for BP following the Deepwater Horizon explosion, and Bill McDaniel, who led global medical relief operations following the Indonesian Tsunami. Along with crisis communication planning and proactive media relations responses, Tim and Bill will talk about their personal and professional experiences during history-making crisis situations, as well as their insights to disaster response from both a communicator's and a first responder's point of view.
