#TwitterChat: The PR strategies that work during times of crisis
A major role of Public Relations is to handle a crisis situation for clients. But what happens during a crisis that envelops the entire world and leaves no sector or industry untouched? What happens when the very safety of mankind is at peril? What happens when the global economy enters recession? How equipped is the communications industry during times like these?
The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown the whole world into disarray. Businesses are struggling as entire countries have come to a standstill due to government-imposed lockdowns and quarantines. Brand activities have taken a backseat in the war against the Coronavirus.
In such market conditions, how is the Public Relations industry fighting back? What are the key challenges that this business is facing? With clients, stakeholders as well as consumers confined to their homes, what communications roadblocks are emerging? How are they strategising to be the brand custodians amid the COVID-19 crisis? What new work processes will emerge once the crisis period is over? What does the world of PR look like in the future?
Questions are many, and to tackle each one of them will be an eminent panel of industry experts on Adgully’s #TwitterChat industry initiative. To be held on Friday, April 3, 2020, between 3 pm and 4 pm, the #TwitterChat this week will deep dive into ‘Power of PR During Times of Crisis’.
