Jackson Spalding Facilitates Global Crisis Network, Partnership With the University of Georgia

ATLANTA, GA – Atlanta-based marketing communications agency Jackson Spalding recently facilitated the formation of the University of Georgia/PROI Worldwide Crisis Communication Monitor, a collaborative project of the University of Georgia Crisis Communication Coalition and PROI Worldwide, the world’s largest partnership of independent communications agencies. The Monitor examines global crisis communication incidents to provide insights to consumers and illustrate best and worst practices for crisis communicators.

Jackson Spalding, a member of PROI Worldwide since 2004, spearheaded the founding of the PROI Americas Crisis Group in 2011 to promote international knowledge-sharing of crisis management philosophies and processes, as well as to create a ‘boots-on-the-ground” global resource network to benefit the agencies’ clients. The Group has since expanded globally.

“This initiative, like so many others we share with our PROI friends across the globe, underscores how news transcends languages and cultures,” said Caroline Duffy, a founding partner at Jackson Spalding and the founding chair of the PROI Worldwide Global Crisis Group. “We feel very fortunate to team up with the best-of-the-best in markets around the world when our clients need global or experience-specific support on breaking issues.”

The University of Georgia/PROI Worldwide Crisis Communication Monitor released its first study  on December 15 debating the Samsung Galaxy Note7 global response.
