Don’t forget to sign up to see Terry Flynn, PhD, APR, FCPRS LM as he embarks on his cross-Canada tour to discuss the Science and Practice of Social Trust and Misinformation. Starting tomorrow, catch him at one of these upcoming stops to learn 7 steps to build trust, combat misinformation and change minds:
There’s no denying it — whether it’s a fender-bender or a major collision, car accidents can be scary. But as hard as it is to go through an accident, sometimes dealing with the fallout can be just as bad.
Between documenting details, police reports, and dealing with insurance, the aftermath of an accident can be anything from a minor inconvenience to a logistical nightmare. And according to the latest reports, only 50% of Canadian drivers are prepared to go through the claims process following a crash.
To help you out, CPRS’ insurance partner, PROLINK, has put together a list of all the things you should and shouldn’t do after an accident.
CPRS members looking to pick up a few tips from their peers across Canada this year, make sure to register for one of these upcoming webinars for free in the Bill Rees Learning Centre at cprs.ca/learn.

It's three in the afternoon, and a journalist asks you to comment on a scandalous story they plan to run the following day. Ignoring the request or stalling should never be an option, says Lindsey Haswell, head of legal and communications at e-scooter company Lime. This situation is a founder's worst nightmare — but it can be avoided.
If sunshine is the best disinfectant, the opposite is also true: dark, hidden corners are great places to grow something truly horrible. Few problems improve with age, and public health crises are no exception. Transparency is “job one” for leaders in a crisis. Be clear what you know, what you don’t know, and what you’re doing to learn more. You can’t manage a secret, as the old saying goes.
We're in the midst of transformative changes that are altering business and industries in very significant ways. Known as the Fourth Industrial Revolution or Industry 4.0, this revolution is responsible for a tremendous metamorphosis in the way our workplaces and the world works just as was experienced in the previous three revolutions. In the 1770s, the First Industrial Revolution ushered in mechanization.

Therefore, in the face of intense competition, and opening up of global markets, focus on building and positioning a logistics brand becomes critical.
