When It Hits The Fan tells you what to do. How to prepare for the worst. What to do when it happens. How to communicate - and maybe even come out of it smelling of roses. And it contains a series of unique, invaluable, fast and easy-to-use checklists on how to prepare, what to do, what to say etc etc.This 2013 edition has been extensively revised and updated to include the latest case studies and developments such as social media.
