Crisis Communication:  What to do when your company is thrown unwillingly into the media spotlight.

Even the best-managed companies can find themselves in a crisis situation, but it’s how well they manage the crisis that determines how quickly they recover. While insurance may pay for immediate financial losses, long-term damage to a brand due to poor crisis management can have devastating consequences. This year’s Hines Symposium brings together a panel of communications experts to discuss what resources risk managers can access and what part they can play in guiding their organizations through a crisis. 

The annual Hines Symposium, hosted by Chicago RIMS/Business Insurance and named for the late brokerage executive Harold H. Hines, is a panel discussion that addresses current issues facing the commercial insurance industry.

Panelists Include:
  • Andrew Moyer, Vice President of Crisis & Risk Management, Edelman
  • Rhonda Barnat, Managing Director, Abernathy MacGregor, New York
  • Jon Diat, Vice President, External Communications/Media Relations at American International Group, Inc., New York
  • Brian Graves, Director of Communications & Public Relations, Oswego School District
