This is the second part of a series on crisis communication on social media in Vietnam by GCPR member EloQ Communications.
Practicing public relations in times of stability is challenging enough, but what about when something goes wrong? That’s when crisis communication comes into play. Crisis communication as a subset of public relations is a fairly young practice in Vietnam. Just as companies and PR firms were beginning to learn out how to handle themselves in a crisis – using press conferences and official media statements – the rise of social media has left them scrambling, with some attempting to embrace social media while others stick to what they know.

As the MBTA taught us, there are certain practices that should be followed when a crisis strikes. Here are three key PR and crisis communications lessons that can be learned from the winter of 2015 MBTA fiasco: Read more

A PR crisis can happen fast. An unexpected event ripples throughout the company and executives go into crisis mode, seeking shelter in the board room. Employees whisper in the hallways. And, once that crisis spreads to the outside world, public companies often watch in horror as the stock price plummets.

Last week, on October 16, at approximately a quarter past 7:00 p.m. ET, people across New England felt the 4.0+ magnitude earthquake that emanated from 20 miles west of Portland, Maine.
