Preparing for the worst is vital for any company.

From Dennistoun to Dallas.

Our Golden Rules of Communication are at the beating heart of these courses we run.

Our rules will help you strengthen your statements in times of crisis.

Both internally with staff, and externally to clients and the press.

We’ll give you a memorable structure to put your information together.

But part of crisis management training is cutting through the noise.

And the first step is to establish the facts.

You’ve then got to separate the public information from the private.

Deciding what you can say right now.

It’ll help build trust with employees and clients.

We’ll talk about sharing as much as you can as soon as possible.

There’s a balance to be found between optimism and realism too.

We’ll share our rule of dropping the pink elephant.

Speaking only using positive, active language.

As opposed to what you can’t do, won’t say and would never consider.

And we’ll spend time dealing with the social media aspects.

What happens when it all kicks off online.

That’s the tip of the iceberg of our crisis management training Glasgow.

What’s in it for you?

At Pink Elephant, we’ve got a clear goal for people on our crisis management courses.

To leave feeling more confident than they did when they arrived.

We’ve got our simple rules and techniques.

But there’s another important aspect to consider.

How are you coming across?

We’ll discuss the tone of your wording.

As well as the tone of your voice over the phone.

Particularly if you’re dealing with the media.

What is your body language telling those watching?

Pace and volume are two further important aspects.

So, during our sessions, we’ll record your performances.

And then we’ll watch them back.

So you can see how it went.

(As opposed to how it felt).

As individuals, we get caught up in the heat of the moment.

And we’re unable to analyse our performance while it’s happening.

Because our trainers worked in TV, they know the value of replaying a performance.

Seeing what went well.

And what they’d change for next time.

You’ll get a USB with your own copy of your performances at the end of the session.

It’ll have a Pink Elephant training vlog for you to watch too.

You’ll get the Golden Rules handbook and the Drop the Pink Elephant book.

Written by company co-founder and Executive Chairman Bill McFarlan.
