Chilean Copper Mine

Before drafting the communications I must take into considerations that the needs of the families, the trapped miners, and the other employees. The family members of the miner will need sympathy as well as a sense of trust that their relative will be rescued. The employees need reassurance that all measures are going to be taken to ensure that this doesn't happen again and that mining in the future will be as safe as possible. Before the message is delivered it would be important to know some of the thoughts and feelings of the audience so that specific concerns could be addressed. After the delivery allowing the audience to ask questions would be beneficial to ensure that the message was received as intended and if it wasn't, the feedback could be used to clarify the message. When I deliver the message to the families, I would do it face-to-face.

We also have back-up plans in place in case of any unforeseen setbacks. We are also going to provide any mental care counseling to you during this horrific tragedy as well as continuing to support you financially. Again I just want you to know that bringing your loved ones home is our number one priority and we will not rest until our mission is complete. At this time I would like to open the floor to any questions.

We are all saddened and concerned about the well being of our fellow workers but I want to make it clear that every effort is being made to bring them home as quickly and safely as possible. We will have a team in place that is focus on the rescue mission and at this time our best estimate is that it is going to take three to four months to complete. If you are
