Tourism stakeholders partake in crisis communications workshop

St. Kitts and findredrainey.com Nevis (WINN): Tourism stakeholders including the media and the buy cialis on line police were last week part of a workshop on crisis communication, conducted by PR firm Adams International that represents St. Kitts in North America.

Regarding on tramadol cheap cod how the viagra legal media should cover incidents that could affect the tourism image of the country without being seen as a PR messenger, Ms. Kimmel noted the media should just report the facts without using incendiary language. “I think the media just simply reports the facts and only the facts,” Kimmel said. “In the emotion of the moment it’s easy to use incendiary language. It easy to use language that can be misinterpreted…does it have to be described as a disaster or a violent crime. Can it be called an incident until we know was it a crime, was it a murder, was its self inflicted. I think that’s we ask of the media; not to whitewash the buy online viagra securely facts.” 

Ms. Kimmel was pleased with the interaction among workshop participants which included police PRO Inspector Lyndon David, other members of the Royal St. Christopher Police Force, members of the media, representative of the St. Kitts Tourism Authority (SKTA) including officials from the SKTA Toronto, Washington and UK offices, a representative from the Nevis Information Service, the St. Christopher Air and Seaports Authority (SCASPA) and the St. Kitts and Nevis Fire and Rescue Services.

If Ms. Kimmel is naive enough to think that the media are going to report "just the facts" in the heat of a crisis, I'd suggest she doesn't know much about how news is cheap viagra cialis levitra gathered or reported, or about crisis communication. In today's world, "news" consists of www.cityofalbany.net rumor, speculation, opinion, supposition, presumption and rosa.org an occasional fact -- all presented by anybody with Internet access and an axe to grind. You might as well get used to it -- and a good PR firm would be telling you how to deal with it. If you think the media are going to wait hours while you gather your thoughts and develop a spiffy statement, think again. They are probably going to start "reporting" on your crisis before some of you know that it is happening. And the first to report plants seeds for the cialis fast rest of the coverage and for the formation of public opinion, and it is extremely difficult to best price levitra change those once they are floating out there on the Internet.
