Executive team replacement, financial difficulties, an environmental issue, or a defective product... There are many issues that can cause a crisis within a company or institution.
During these uncertain times, the role of the spokesperson becomes a crucial element. The proper response can minimise the impact and damage of an incident. One must know what to say, how to say it, when and to whom.
