EPISODE 13: Crisis Communication Strategy with Katherine Heaviside, President of Epoch 5 Public Relations

Katherine Heaviside, President and Founder of Epoch 5 Public Relations, talks to Eric about the importance of communication from a distinctly human PR perspective, and about how the means and impact of communication are changing in today’s world.  

In today’s episode, we explore that impact. On one hand, misinformation can ruin a company’s image in minutes. On the other hand, the right action can lead to a positive image for your company and greater success in its community.   

Episode Highlights — We discuss:   

  • How PR communication shifted in recent years. It now largely takes place between employers and employees – as such relationships are a growing part of your company’s image.  
  • How “doing the right thing at the right time” can lead to make your company a positive force in its community, and increase market share.  
  • What goes into a Crisis Management Plan, and how can it set your company up to do the right thing at the right time?   

“Clear and inspiring communication is really essential to moving people to a better place.” — Katherine Heaviside
