The last six months have shown again that communicating during emergencies is critical to the preservation of life, property and communities. Whatever the outcomes, it is vital that professional communicators continually review and assess the effectiveness of their messaging.  

What communication has worked well, and what didn’t quite hit the mark? What did we learn, and how can we all communicate and engage even better in the future?
