Develop a crisis-communication plan that works 

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa – The University of Northern Iowa Panther Speakers program will offer a free webinar "Crisis Management and Communication- A How-to Approach," presented by Jim O'Connor, executive director of the Office of University Relations, from noon to 12:50 p.m., on Wednesday, Feb. 16.

When a crisis hits, it's too late to figure out what to do. Your business or organization's reputation and future hinges on your response. You need to be ready. This high-energy presentation will provide guests with a practical, real-world approach to developing and implementing a crisis-communication plan that works.

A Distinguished Member of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, O'Connor travels throughout the Midwest speaking about topics ranging from marketing and public relations, to crisis communication, to self-improvement. An accredited member of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), he leads UNI's marketing and public relations efforts and is the university's primary spokesperson during crises.
