Knock Knock. It's the TV news investigative team at the door shoving a camera in your face.

Crises in business are inevitable. Do you know what to do when things go wrong and the media is waiting for you?

Bruce Hennes does. He's an expert in Crisis Communications. Whereas traditional Public Relations tries to educate a group, over time, about your product and services, crisis communications will strive to "make it go away" when bad things happens.

If you don't have a crisis communications plan ready for this media-frenzied age, you and your company may face that unfortunate scenario one day of scurrying to hide from a camera crew.

In this interview, Bruce Hennes gives expert advice and examples on dealing with those inevitable crises.
