PAST EVENT: Managing crises: before, during and after

Wednesday 6 June, 5.30pm. Upstairs at The Jericho Tavern, Walton Street

The Cambridge Analytica scandal has highlighted just how damaging PR crises can be. From a small tech PR firm in East Anglia to a Silicon Valley behemoth, it seems no one is immune from reputational damage.

As big data brings companies to their knees; digital communications exposes organisations to scrutiny like never before; and as the media landscape changes beyond all recognition, we’ll be asking what PR professionals can do to mitigate the damage of reputational crises.

Through a discussion with leading figures in Oxford’s vibrant PR community, we will be examining the anatomy of a crisis: before it starts; while it happens; and after it passes. This event will provide practical advice for PR professionals about what they can do to support their organisations and their clients.

Featuring speakers:

  • Matthew Sherrington, Communications Director, Oxfam
  • Rachel Goode, Group Communications Director, Oxford University Press
  • Adam Barber, Managing Director, Tamarindo Communications
