We have all seen a media interview where a CEO, senior-level executive or company spokesperson said something incorrect or less than professional. This week, crisis communications expert Gerard Braud polls social media to ask, “What should you do if you are in the middle of a television interview and you know you’ve said something wrong?” We want to hear your expert public relations tips this week! Should you re-visit the topic and admit you made a mistake? Or do you run the risk of making the situation worse? Do you think that effective media training for spokespeople could help them avoid these types of situations?
We would love to hear your thoughts this week. Comment here and on our social media pages to join the discussion. Your answers may be featured in our follow-up video!
