Crisis Communications Management
for Education Leaders

When negative incidents happen in a school, leaders have very little or no time to respond before the media is on their doorstep. Our Crisis Communications Management training is now essential for education leaders due to the alarming growth of incidents greatly affecting the reputation of schools and their leadership.

Unfortunately, most leaders look like a startled deer in headlights and find themselves totally ill-prepared to face the media and handle the situation effectively.

TV and news media will immediately barrage you with a series of demanding questions, which could easily catch you off guard and present you and your school in a negative light.

Our Crisis Communications Management training will prepare education leaders to meet and professionally manage the local and national TV news if a crisis or scandal were to hit your school.
