What To Do When Your Company Is the News



Join Us!

11:30 a.m. - 1:15 p.m.

TPO, 980 Jefferson Street, Jax


The more your company grows, the more likely you are to face public scrutiny. If you don’t act quickly during a crisis, someone else may be the first to share the information with the public.  

From the earliest minutes of an unexpected event – an accident, natural disaster, lawsuit, workplace violence, cyberattack – how you react has a direct impact on your employees, your customers and your firm’s long-term reputation. Tucker/Hall Vice President John Finotti will share his firm’s best practices on handling a crisis before, during, and after – to help you anticipate and plan for risk, manage ongoing crises, and repair your reputation afterward.
