Case Studies in Media Training, Crisis Response & Client Management

April and Laura are back in the virtual recording booth for another 1:1 strategy session! This week, they’re dissecting a media mishap that went viral earlier this spring when Kellogg’s Co-CEO Gary Pilnick suggested that consumers eat cereal for dinner when their funds are tight. Tune in as April and Laura discuss the backlash and boycotts which ensued on social media, analyze how Kellog’s slow response impacted the narrative, and offer suggestions for how the brand could have mitigated the fallout.

This week’s Anonymous PR Horror story features a write-in from a listener whose client has been ghosting them for regularly-scheduled calls. April and Laura share the warning sings of a potentially disengaged client, how to crack through the silence when a client is difficult to reach, and how to identify the best methods of communication for every client contact.
