TGPR’s Susan Tellem discusses the importance of planning in crisis management in this new article from Government Product News.
It will never happen to us. I can’t tell you how many times I have heard those words over the past 35 years. Yet it happened to governments in financial crises, corruption charges, obscene selfies, protests gone awry and the list goes on…and on…and on. Putting your head in the sand is not uncommon in government in America…
Susan suggests a test we call our “Vulnerability Survey.” It might move the needle a notch, perhaps even enough to make changes that can save your reputation. Score less than eight, and you flunk.

For 30 years, our crisis management team, lead by Susan, has provided private and public companies, nonprofits and individuals crisis support. Typically, the crises our clients experience include corporate malfeasance, sexual harassment, celebrity missteps, product recalls, food poisonings, public health issues, litigation support, disasters as well as large scale events with crisis potential.
