"Crisis Preparedness in 2017: how to
prepare for the next tweet"
We live in a very complex and vulnerable world. Our economy, infrastructure and ‘smart
cities’ run on data that can be hacked. On social media, a badly managed issue can
quickly turn into a reputational crisis. Politicians use Twitter to take aim at companies
that are in their cross hairs. Alternative facts make for fake news, and the reputations of
companies suffer. Guest speaker Jo Detavernier will not only share his thoughts on our
current predicament, but will also offer hands-on counsel on how to prepare for crisis
communications in this new force field. From the activation of the crisis team to
equipping the ‘war room’: Jo will go over the entire process of preparing for a crisis
and will make ample use of anecdotes and illustrations from his vast experience in
helping companies up their crisis readiness.
Jo Detavernier, APR has nearly 15 years of experience in communications agencies, is a Partner
and VP of Manzer Communications, an independent B2B tech PR agency with offices in Austin,
Denver and Houston, an APR-accredited PR consultant and a member of the CIP Institute.
Jo has delivered crisis communications counsel and support to companies as diverse as SWIFT,
Evonik Degussa and Mattel.
We would like to thank Manzer Communications for sponsoring this event.
