Predictive Insights – Looking for Clues in Advance of the Next Active Shooting Event
It’s important for crisis professionals to not only think through their most immediate use case but to be predictive where possible about future needs. In this presentation, we will discuss how you can work toward eliminating crisis surprise, disaster denial, and self-deception by using technology and analysis to identify potential violent issues before they evolve into a crisis.
Anticipating the Known and Unknown – Planning for Your Next Crisis
Every act of violence requires a unique response because no two events are alike. Other business priorities can make it convenient to believe that violence will not visit our workplace. Don’t fall victim to that “disaster denial” thinking. In this presentation, we will review not only the importance of planning but how to plan for your next crisis.
December 12 – 2-2:45 p.m. ET
Performing in the Darkest Hour – Responding to an Act of Violence in Your Organization
What happens when violence does strike? Does your organization have a violence response program? How will you communicate with employees, stakeholders, and others during and after a crisis? Do not wait until after a crisis to answer these questions. In this presentation, we will walk attendees through preparedness best practices and action steps to take when violence enters your door.
