Keeping It Real in an Increasingly Unreal World

May 10, 2017 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

As professional communicators, the struggle with how to best handle controversies and difficult issues that, if not handled appropriately, can significantly impact our company’s or our client’s brand and reputation is all too real. How do we guide the actions of our teams, including our executives, and maintain consistent, responsible, ethical and legal choices through difficult times?

Join our distinguished panel of experts for our May 10 luncheon at Taps in Irvine as we take an in-depth look at strategies and solutions for a world where, as IABC International notes, “fake news” and “alternative facts” have become common terms, and it is incumbent upon us to keep the record straight
