How to Manage a World in Crisis

$49 Member Price
$79 Nonmember Price

Today’s executives are consumed with their everyday business to the extent that they do not want to worry about the “what if’s”. The world is in such turmoil that leaders are laser focused on reducing costs while ensuring that their business operates at an optimal level; resulting in customer satisfaction and shareholder ROI. This is the case until the inevitable happens, the “it will never happen to us”, is transformed into “what happened?”. This presentation will provide examples and describe how to create a model that gives crisis management teams the ability to act instead of react in times of crisis. 

Learning Objectives 

Upon completion, participants will be able to: 

  • Develop a crisis management model. 
  • Train and exercise the model. 
  • Communicate the model to executives and crisis management leaders in order to receive buy-in to the program.
