  • What steps must your organization take in order to protect its image and reputation when it is experiencing the crisis?
  • Describe the responsibilities of public relations (PR) and public affairs (PA) during your critical event?
  • At what point should PR and PA seek legal counsel? Why?
  • What is the public’s right to know about the critical event versus what information should be kept private.
  • What ethical questions emerge when managing a crisis?
  • What are the most effective ways to develop symbiotic relationships with the media prior to a critical event?
  • What are the essential responsibilities of a spokesperson? What credentials must he or she possess?
  • During interviews, press briefings or press conferences how should the spokesperson handle a reporter’s negative, hostile or “gotcha” questions”?
