WEBINAR | Communicating in COVID – Calm, Clear, Consistent
Date: June 17, 2020
Time: 12:00pm
In this webinar, we will share strategies for communicating in these uncertain COVID-19 times. As schools move into the re-set phase – scenario planning for back-to-school, communications plays a critical role in reaching the school community and building trust. Based on our work with hundreds of US and international schools during COVID-19, we will look at best practices in content, tone, and timing of communications. Whether your re-set plan is a hybrid, delay until 2021, or something else, we will look at how to land the messaging right. There will be time for Q & A.

Presenters: Jane Maxwell Hulbert, Partner; and Jim Hulbert, J.D., Partner, The Jane Group
