The next episode of FIR Live will look at the communication efforts surrounding the Deepwater Horizon explosion and subsequent oil spill—the worst in U.S. history. Our guests are… * Gerald Baron, who authors the Crisisblogger blog and wrote “Now is Too Late 2,” one of the best books available on crisis communication in the digital era. Gerald is a founder and Director of Strategic Services for PIER (Public Information Emergency Response) Systems, a crisis communication technology solution. (PIER Systems was used by BP during the Gulf spill crisis.) Most recently, Gerald wrote the white paper, “Unending Flow: Case Study on Communications in the Gulf Oil Spill. * Neil Chapman, a BP communicator, was part of BP’s communications response team for the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. He has been on the communications front line for controversial industrial projects, company takeovers, trading scandals and lobbying campaigns. Neil was the subject of an FIR interview with co-host Neville Hobson earlier this year.
