Crisis Communications Boot Camp

May 6, 2015

8:30 AM to 2:30 PM

McDonogh School

Join us for a day of crisis management and how to communicate when a crisis hits your school. This boot camp will take participants through how to plan in advance of a crisis, and the most important steps to take in the first 48 hours. Crisis plan basics, including what every plan should have, will be discussed and participants will receive plan templates. Communicating in a crisis can be challenging and The Jane Group will share proven strategies to help you get it right when communicating to your constituencies. The day will wrap up with case studies based on actual school crises. The boot camp is geared to heads of school, crisis teams and anyone who has crisis responsibilities. Schools are encouraged to send teams of two or more who share crisis communications responsibilities.

Jane Hulbert, founder of The Jane Group, has been the NAIS (National Association of Independent Schools) crisis communications consultant since 2002. She counsels independent, international, for profit and charter schools on crisis and reputation management issues, crisis preparation and planning, messaging, media management, and spokesperson training.
