About the event

How to Manage Communications in a Crisis

Laurie Bell, CEO of the Cheltenham Trust was previously Deputy Chief Executive Director of Wiltshire Council and the lead on the communications strategy for the Novichok disaster in Salisbury a few years ago. During this time Laurie learnt valuable lessons on brand, trust, honesty and how to manage a PR nightmare and regain customer trust in a brand. Not only did she have to deal with the devastating blow of the first disaster and build the confidence back into Salisbury but after the second incident rebuild from the beginning again – a much harder task second time around!  At this boardroom session we will hear from Laurie, her experiences and lessons learnt along the way, good communication is key! We will also hear what the strategy is to lead the Cheltenham Trust into a new era.

We all know how important it is to take time out of working in the business to work on the business. These Boardroom sessions are an ideal opportunity to take time out and discuss current topics affecting your business; gain insights into what others are doing and share your experiences and expertise to help other business leaders.
