You’re not only representing yourself and your personal brand but also whatever organization you’re associated with, whether it’s a business, your own company, your team, your charity, your church or your family – so being prepared is vital.

How will you answer the touch questions? Have you thought through your messaging if you or a friend gets flagged on Facebook? How will you talk to your child’s teacher about a difficult family issue? What will you say if a family member encounters legal issues?

Cam Newton didn’t represent himself or the Carolina Panthers well but he has a PR team to help him recover.


Large com­pa­nies have pub­lic rela­tions depart­ments to han­dle their com­mu­ni­ca­tion crises, but reg­u­lar folks don’t.

Often they are caught in a dilemma of think­ing: ‘what do I say in this sit­u­a­tion?’ or ‘how should I respond to that?’

With­out the skills to write nuanced copy or craft the per­fect ver­bal response, they can be caught short and end up look­ing bad.

Thurs­day morn­ings at 7:20 a.m., Jill Ellis-Worthington, Chief Com­mu­ni­ca­tor for Write.On Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Ser­vices, chats with Mike Stubbs on CJBK’s morn­ing drive show to dis­cuss how to han­dle Per­sonal PR problems.

Jill helps lis­ten­ers with their com­mu­ni­ca­tion issues by apply­ing the prin­ci­ples of PR to every day issues.
