  • Description

Thinking about the right answer to very basic questions in crisis preparation is a prerequisite for any successful crisis management.

In times of crisis and uncertainty, people, companies and governments are forced to prove that their capacities are sufficient to cope with the new situation. It is often only then that they have to test whether their contingency planning and preparedness was realistic, started early enough and included all components that the situation requires.

This webinar will explain different areas that a company, business or NGO should consider in their contingency planning efforts.

You will be introduced to common contingency planning considerations and methods, ranging from crisis communication to safety and security and the planning of appropriate training for staff members. These will help you to prepare yourself and your team – if not now, then probably for your next employment – for crisis situations, no matter in which area you are active.

The webinar will give you practical tips and guidance for the preparation of your own contingency planning. Examples of successful and less successful planning will show what you should take care of and how to prepare your team and yourself – mentally and practically.
