Welcome to episode #007 of The Crisis Intelligence Podcast, with Melissa Agnes and Sara Hawkins
Sara Hawkins is a savvy attorney dedicated to helping the “little guys out there”. Her policy is to never say “no”, but to help her clients find the right strategies and solutions to their problems.
Sara is one of those fabulous attorneys who fully “gets” the realities of crisis communication today, which is why I absolutely wanted to sit down with her and discuss how professionals can overcome the legal challenges of crisis communication.
In this episode, Sara and I discuss:
- How to deal with today’s demand for real-time communications in a crisis – without putting your organization at legal risk.
- The acceptable version of “no comment” and how to communicate it with your stakeholders.
- When and how to bring attorneys (whether in-house council or outside council) into the crisis planning and management stages.
- How to effectively work with your legal council in a crisis.
- How to overcome push-back from legal council in and prior to a crisis.
- The legal risks involved with deleting published content.
Sara has a fresh and savvy perspective on the realities of crises and real-time communications, and shares some great information when it comes to working with your legal council in a crisis, within this episode.
Enjoy the listen!
