Top 10 ‘Must Do’ Action Steps in Crisis Management

Life is filled with unexpected bad surprises in the form of crises — and it’s important to count on the likelihood they will occur. But, few are properly prepared to handle those dire situations. Whether it’s a corporation, government entity, non-profit or individual, preparing for crisis includes having a plan that involves candor, control, cooperation and cool.

Presentation given by Ron Sachs, President and CEO of Sachs Media Group, at the 2013 Florida Public Relations Association Annual Conference.
