"You cannot build trust during a crisis."
These words really summarize the theme from our webinar early this week. "Communicating through a Mining Crisis: Tips on How to Use Social Media" was a well received and valuable presentation we offered to our partners and friends within the mining community. If you were unable to attend, we've shared a recording of the webinar which you. It can be found below.
In brief, here are a few takeaways from the presentation:
1. It's too late to use social media for the first time when a crisis happens. Mining needs to establish those relationships well before an incident.
2. People tend to search social media accounts for updates on a crisis before they refer to a company's website. This is a great opportunity to be the first source of information during this time.
3. Plan your crisis communication strategy and test it during a mock drill with your operation. You will be happy you did.
