The Panama Papers story has grabbed headlines around the world. It is interesting to see how those caught up in this scandal are reacting. From Putin we saw bravado. In Iceland we find the biggest fallout so far, with the resignation of the Prime Minister. He sat down for a media interview days before resigning, but apparently he wasn't prepared for the questions. He did the worst thing anyone can do during an interview; he walked out without answering a reporter's question. Media Interview Training would have helped him navigate the interview. Watch the clip here from ABC News.
No amount of media training can solve your legal problems. But if you have nothing to hide, yet need help expressing yourself to protect your reputation, that's when crisis communication experts should be called in to help.
