  • You should already be familiar with PR techniques and strategies.
  • These strategies should grow your company's image and credibility and should motivate clients to buy.
  • The basic PR works too.

Do you love your company ? Do you love your business ? you love your clients ? Well...that's great...because the crisis is coming. And it's not a problem of "if", it's a problem of "when". In business we won't use "If the crisis will come...", but we use.."When the crisis will come..."

In my course you will find 11 chapters that will help you create a Crisis Management plan and save your credibility and, why not, your company. In each chapter you will find a "How to..." section. 

Audi, Exxon Valdez, Toyota, Martha Stewart or Tiger Woods. In this course you will find incredible stories on how to deal ( or not ) with a crisis and more than 30 strategies on how to cope in a tough situation. An interactive and fun to read course.

"Well..if a crisis will come, I will see in that moment what I am going to do..."

Unfortunately, this business "strategy" is pretty bad and is very common.

"Well...why is so bad.." you may ask...

The answer is pretty simple : In Crisis Management you have one hour to respond. You won't have time to read books, take courses or search on Google.


Enjoy :)

PR Strategist

In the modern technological and informational era, it became important for companies to promote their IDENTITY for an increased visibility. The products and services they propose should respond to a high specificity of client desires. The DIFFERENTIATION from all competitors is a tricky issue to be overcome and would position one of the competitors as a market leader. This would promote and increased CREDIBILITY and would further strengthen the company's market advantages.

I am an expert in PR for both companies and people. My work is to help them all to make the right choices in order to differentiate from others. I developed new PR strategies that are the fundament of many successes.

Creating and promoting your image and your values is the first step to become a leader and to make a difference. This is my work and I can help you with that!
