Ann Marie spoke on Social Media Crisis Communications planning at the May luncheon for the New Mexico chapter of the Public Relations Society of America. She was a wonderful speaker, with a lot of insight into how a crisis can impact an organization over social media before people realize it. She had a lot of great examples and solid advice for those professionals who would have to deal with a crisis quickly in the social media world. If you have a chance, your organization should bring in Ann Marie to get you ready before a crisis happens. You’ll be glad you did.
