PowerPoint Instructions

Create a 5-8-slide PowerPoint presentation that will be delivered to the internal crisis management team. Refer to “Creating Effective PowerPoint Presentations” in the Topic 7 Resources as needed for additional guidance. In your presentation, be sure to include the following:

· Address at least these four key elements of a crisis communication plan: crisis team, designated spokesperson, media policy/plan, and statement. Note also how the recommended statement is persuasive to achieve the desired outcome.

Ideally, each team member should be visually present on the recorded video as each of the slides are presented.
