  • Cyber #FailHow to Understand & Manage Small Business Cyber Security. There is so much noise around small business cybersecurity. So let’s cut through the noise and close the gaps in your small business’s cyber security with knowledge. The hardest part about small business cyber security is getting started. First, we’ll discuss common cyber threats to your business, then how to lessen the risk, and how to recover after an attack. Armed with knowledge, you can make harder on cybercriminals.

  • When Social Media Hits the Fan: How to Plan for, Prevent, and Manage a Social Media Crisis. Your business or organization will face a crisis. That’s a fact. Here’s another: Thanks to social media, crises happen more often and accelerate out of control faster—much faster. You’ll learn how to successfully defend yourself using the same social tools others are using against you. You’ll see what works (and doesn’t). You’ll learn from folks who’ve been there and lived to talk about it: leaders who’ve been forced to execute their own crisis plans in the most brutally tough situations.

  • Crisis Communications: Planning for the Unthinkable and Keeping Your Business Communicating and Open for Business. Bad things happen to good organizations. Therefore, effective crisis communication is crucial but often overlooked and an internal concern. In this conversation, we will talk about critical communications and why it is essential to recover quickly and with their reputation intact.

Ann Marie captured the attention of the group and several followed through on her suggestions during the meeting. As a group, we are trying to integrate Facebook, Twitter, FourSquare and a few other sites to spread awareness of our name. A very well presented topic and any questions were handled with ease.

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.
