(07-03-2018) Workshop Crisis Communication

On Tuesday, the 6th of March, 20 pupils of the Pius-X college from Bladel (the Netherlands) visited Ghent University. During this visit, the pupils participated in a workshop on crisis communication in the co-creation room of the Krook. This workshop was led by one of our PhD students, Hannelore Crijns. During the workshop, the pupils were introduced to several basic concepts regarding crisis communication and learned some tips and tricks on how to deal with crises as a crisis communication manager. Afterwards, the pupils were divided into 4 groups and they designed an appropriate crisis response strategy for one specific case.
