Doing and Saying the Right Thing
This book is as much a training manual as it is a guide to successful risk and crisis management. It has been developed out of the methodology of the SOCKO(tm) SYSTEM which has been the heart of the training program employed at the Centre for Training in Risk and Crisis Management in Toronto, Canada.
"There is no shortage of people who should read this book, starting with the legions of public relations and communications professionals. But, more importantly, I recommend it to those numerous individuals in senior positions throughout organizations who believe they are naturally born communicators who can wing it. They should treat Mr. Bonner's book like a religious text and return to it again and again for guidance."
