What were your impressions on Apple’s press conference on Friday? The company were under a lot of pressure to reassure their customers over the iPhone 4 antenna/reception problems, but we have the thoughts of a crisis expert to share with you now.
As reported from ComputerWorld, Patrick Kerley, a senior digital strategist with Levick Strategic Communications whose company deals with situations when fellow companies are under pressure.
According to Kerley, Apple’s performance during the testing segment of their press conference was worthy of an A- or B+ grade. However, an overall rating for the whole press event was only deemed worthy of a C grade.
