Crisis management and strategic communication

December 2022

In recent years, businesses have been faced with an array of novel crises. Today’s environment of 24/7 connectedness, combined with a societal breakdown in trust, puts pressure on companies to respond quickly and transparently to unprecedented events. To best preserve and enhance corporate reputations when crises inevitably arise, high-performing boards and management teams are focused on crisis preparedness through a variety of efforts.

On November 21, 2022, Lead Director Network (LDN) members discussed crisis management through strategic communication with guest Richard Levick, chair and CEO of the public relations firm LEVICK. Participants shared perspectives on how an expanding and evolving crisis landscape is changing the way companies prepare for, lead through, and communicate to stakeholders during and following a crisis event.
