2014 International Crisis & Risk Communication Conference
The Human Element
The International Crisis & Risk Communication (ICRC) Conference provides a unique opportunity for leading researchers to come together with crisis and risk communication practitioners and professionals. The discussions enable participants to share, discuss, interact and network to the betterment of their goals, meet their respective needs, advance both theory and practice and establish best practices. The conference provides current research findings and proven best practices which enables attendees to learn, grow and enhance their knowledge, skills and abilities. Effective crisis and risk communication can make the difference in business and organizational success, operational continuity, health and wellness, emergency management, disaster recovery, image-reputation brand management, product safety, incident notification, media relations and the role for social media applications.
The ICRC Conference annually brings together the leading experts – both academic and professional – to collaboratively seek insights and understanding of what makes crisis and risk communication successful.
The 2014 ICRC Conference theme is: The Human Element. The theme for the 2014 ICRC Conference calls our attention to the human factors that can cause crises, help mitigate incidents, create and manage communication before, during and after events. It also looks at the wide range of “audience variables” that affect comprehension, understanding and behavioral response to crisis and risk communication. Attendees will participate in presentations (including first hand experiential reports, original research, lessons learned/best practices or general normative recommendations) related to crisis and risk communication.
