Get your planners out everybody, because we’re talking crisis communication! As event planners, there are a million things we have to keep in mind. And amongst all of that, there is always the consideration of what might go wrong. Because let’s face it, what are the odds everything will go according to plan? Something will always escape our control, which is exactly why having a plan for crisis communication is so important. It might sound a bit alarming at first, but it will save you a lot of trouble! And especially within the paradigm, we operate in today, being prepared is an absolute must!
