Event description

Description

CIPR Northern Ireland is proud to host a special #SummerofCPD ‘999 – Emergency Communications’ Panel Event on Thursday August 24th in Belfast.

Amanda Coleman, Head of Corporate Communications for Greater Manchester Police will deliver a special keynote presentation. With more than 25 years’ experience, Amanda has led the communications team at Greater Manchester Police through some challenging times. Most recently, she directed the force through the aftermath of the Manchester Arena terror attack in May 2017.

Following her presentation, Amanda will be joined by a panel of local, highly-respected communications professionals from the emergency services and public sector fields to share invaluable advice on how to handle communications in an emergency or crisis situation.

Joining Amanda on the panel are: Liz Young, Head of Corporate Communications for the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI); John McPoland who has acted as Media and Communications Manager for the Ambulance Service of Northern Ireland since 2003; and Michelle Canning,
Senior Communications Manager, Northern Ireland Housing Executive.

During this special #SummerofCPD event, Amanda, Liz, John and Michelle will share their advice, insights, tools and learnings on how PR professionals can conduct successful communications before, during and after a crisis.

Amanda will also share her views on how, we as communication professionals, need to reshape our approach to crisis communications into a longer term approach, covering questions such as: how do we communicate once ‘normality’ has resumed? Have you considered more than just the initial response? Do you know an organisation’s recovery may take months or even years?

Guests will also get the opportunity to put questions to the panel, with a Q&A session following Amanda’s presentation.

Following the event, guests are encouraged to stay on to network with the speakers and industry peers. Local drinks company, Dillon Bass, will provide guests with a refreshing drinks reception after the event.
