Communicating in a Crisis: Analyzing the Best Approach with American Red Cross Regional Communications Officer Brittany Jennings

The 2017 Hurricane Season was one of the most active in history, with four of the storms hitting U.S. shores (the most since 2005), including Harvey, Irma and Maria that left a trail of destruction, downed power lines, and flooded homes in their wake.

Join us on Wednesday, February 21 as we welcome Brittany Jennings, Regional Communications Officer of the American Red Cross in Eastern North Carolina. Brittany will speak to the importance of having a strategic crisis communications plan in place, while sharing insights on how to respond effectively and efficiently in the case of an emergency, and what your companies can be doing to help.
