Program Description
Communicating during an emergency or crisis is one of the most important elements of a workplace disaster preparedness plan. With the pandemic, many have experienced this truth firsthand. The goal of this discussion is to provide our CFOs with the tools to take their communication and preparedness plan to the next level.

Join us for ‘Leading in a Crisis: Communication in uncertain times,’ where our panel of experts will share their Crisis Communication “check-list” and best practices.

• What is crisis communications and why you need to know about it
• How to proactively prepare for a range of "crises"
• What resources might a company or organization need to line up in advance
