Praise for Edward Segal’s Crisis Ready
With real-time social media available to billions of people, a crisis is just one tweet or YouTube video away. However, when something does occur that has potential to affect your reputation, ‘no comment’ is not a savvy response. Crisis Ready prepares you for effectively managing threats to your business. It’s your guide to the strategies and tactics of effective real-time communications. Read it so you will be ready when (not if) crisis hits your organization.
David Meerman Scott, marketing strategist, entrepreneur, and bestselling author of eleven books including The New Rules of Marketing and PR.

Associations and nonprofit organizations sometime wrongly believe they are immune from a crisis, or that its impact will be minimal. It is not difficult to find news about organizations that have had to deal with million dollar embezzlements, violations of the law (“We didn’t know”) or a death at their planned event. Having a crisis response plan and resources is critical for survival for leaders, staff, and boards of directors Crisis Ready, and the expertise and examples provided by author Edward Segal, are valuable tools.
I know from my experience and research that proactive planning is critical in order for companies and organizations to successfully weather a crisis and come out even stronger on the other side. The bad news is that crises are inevitable. The good news is that in Crisis Ready Edward Segal provides the protocols that are necessary to help ensure the survival of a business and the resiliency of its brand.
