Crisis Communications Workshop a Success
Before closing, I want to thank everyone who joined us for our crisis communications workshop earlier this month! I want to especially express appreciation for our speakers: Fred Morgan, Chris Valentine, Amy Sufak, Kim Melchor and Bill Fortune. We heard great feedback from attendees who shared they walked away with practical crisis communications takeaways from all of the presentations. And KRDO stopped by to cover the event.
I hope to see you on November 13!
