Keynote Speaker Announced for the 2018 Continuity Insights Management Conference

Don’t Talk to the Media Until…
Being an Effective Spokesperson in Today’s Digital Age
Gerard Braud, CSP, Fellow IEC
In Gerard Braud’s keynote session you will explore why speed is critical in both your event response and your communications response. In this digital age, the story about your response can easily get hijacked by others, hastening the need for your organization to issue a statement to all audiences, including the media.

If you’ve ever been in the spokesperson role, you may wonder why you get taken out of context or why your best stuff gets left on the cutting room floor. Braud will unlock his vault of secrets to help you be better prepared to today’s communications realities.

Braud is an international crisis communications expert, coach, trainer, and author, who has worked with organizations on five continents. Known as the guy to call when “it” hits the fan, he is widely regarded as an expert in crisis communications and media issues.

Braud has been active in the field of communications since 1979. For 15 years, he worked in print, radio and television as a front line journalist, on the scene of every type of disaster imaginable. His reports have been seen around the world on NBC, CBS, CNN, The BBC, and The Weather Channel. Since 1994 he has specialized in helping organizations communicate more effectively through media training, crisis communications plans, and employee-manager training.

The plush hotels of Miami Beach and the historic hideaways of Coral Gables. Seemingly endless shopping opportunities in modern, sprawling malls and the quiet, personal attention offered by the family-owned shops of Coconut Grove and many other corners of the region. The lures of deep-sea fishing and golf and tennis. Miami’s major league football, basketball, hockey and baseball. Art festivals and outdoor food and wine extravaganzas. An international airport and the world’s busiest cruise port. The Miami area offers all of this – and so much more.
