PRSA Meeting Notice

You never know when a crisis will hit. In 2013, Keith Isbell and the Williams team dealt with a tragic industrial accident at a company plant in Louisiana which drew national news coverage.

Keith Isbell is a member of the external communications team at Williams, and previously led communications for a local school district and worked in the media as an anchor and reporter for a local television station.

Keith joins us at our June Meeting to discuss how the Williams team handled this situation, offer lessons learned, and provide key insight to ensure your crisis communications plan is ready, should a crisis strike.
