Crisis Prep Involves More Than a Plan @ Office of O’Neill and Associates
Apr 13 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Successful crisis management recognizes that the manner in which an organization responds to the media is as important as the content of its response.  An organization that doesn’t handle reports well leaves in question its ability to manage the authorities and the victims.

Ultimately, successful crisis management greatly depends on having people share their problems, making those outside of their areas of responsibility aware at the earliest possible time of issues that could become public communications challenges.

Join IABC Boston for what is sure to be an engaging and topical presentation by Hugh Drummond, SVP Communications with O’Neill and Associates, which is holding the event in their downtown Boston office near Government Center.

Prior to the presentation, IABC Boston is hosting an on-site reception with wine and light refreshments. Please join us!

6:00 – 6:30 p.m. — Reception

6:30 – 8:00 p.m. — Presentation followed by Q&A


Presenter: Hugh Drummond

Hugh’s expertise in media relations, corporate communications, crisis management and public affairs is gleaned from positions in the private sector, nonprofits, the United States Senate and several political campaigns.  Prior to joining O’Neill and Associates, Hugh was director of communications for the Massachusetts American Red Cross, and served as spokesperson on disaster relief operations including Hurricane Katrina, the Danvers (MA) chemical plant explosion and several major fires, storms and flood emergencies.
