Communications Manager Ashley Hunt from Caterpillar will join us to talk best practices for communicating during a crisis. She'll share real-life situations from her experience at Caterpillar and discuss why you need to plan for a variety of different scenarios and a plan for none of those scenarios to work out the way you'd like. She'll also cover best practices for communicating with employees and working with the media.
