What will Google Glass mean for your company or organization’s crisis communications and crisis management? What are the real-time risks that Google Glass will present to your organization, and how can you make sure to be prepared for these risks – and when should you start preparing?
We can’t hide from or deny the fact that wearable technology is the up-and-coming and will present many risks and many opportunities to society, individuals, companies and organizations – In fact, the risks have already begun to surface.
I recently had the opportunity to sit down with the fabulous Karen Freberg, who is part of the Google Glass Explorers Program, to discuss Google Glass and the many benefits, opportunities and downsides Glass will bring to your company’s crisis communications and crisis management in the very near future.
Within the below video (which you can also download as an .mp3 to listen to on-the-go) Karen and I discuss:
- How Glass will benefit your crisis communications – both internally and externally
- What Google Glass will mean for first responders
- How Glass is going to affect citizen journalism – and what this means for your company or organization
- What companies and organizations need to plan to do (and start doing) in order to protect and prepare themselves from the risks and the benefits of Google Glass
- And a whole bunch more!
