COVID-19 Communications Counsel:

On behalf of everyone at Fraser Torosay, I hope you are taking care of yourself during this challenging time. Many leaders are asking me for some quick advice on the best way to communicate through this. Here are some thoughts:

  • Yes, this is a crisis -- but it is a global crisis. It doesn't need to be your crisis.
  • Communicate with honesty, regularity and empathy. Everyone is afraid of the unknown right now.
  • There is no such thing as over-communicating in a situation like this.
  • Before assembling a communication of any kind, first, consider who is your target audience for this particular communication. Who precisely are you trying to reach, influence and/or persuade?
  • In communicating, address these four key areas:

  1. Here's what we know for fact about how COVID-19 is impacting our operations.
  2. Here's what we do not know at this point.
  3. Here are actions we are taking to best manage the situation.
  4. Here is how/when you can get more information.

I truly hope this helps in some way.

Be well.
