Crisis Communication Plan

Does your business or organization have an action plan in place in case of a PR crisis? According to a poll, only 62% of businesses have a crisis communication plan—and of those that do—the majority do not update it as needed or practice scenarios where it can be implemented.

At Proven Media, we’re leaders in implementing communication, public relations, and marketing plans. This means crisis communication plans as well—which are vital to organizations of every size and in every industry. What is a crisis communication plan and why is it important? Read on to find out.

It used to be that the goal with cannabis was to mask the taste, but in the hands of trained chefs, cannabis is being celebrated as an ingredient in gourmet cuisine and elevated in epicurean edibles.
