What are some considerations to remember given the different roles and principle in the audience? When a disaster occurs in a company, often times the perception of the accident may be portrayed exponentially negative per se, if the representatives of the company do not manage to "slow the fall" when giving the news to the people. While presenting the news to the audience, or those interested, related and/or involved with the accident, there are basic explicit considerations needed to remember. First of all, there are various audiences rather than one common solid audience.
