Every organisation is vulnerable to crises. Regardless of the severity and duration of the impact, a crisis affects all.

Customers cancel orders, employees get questioned, shareholders become worried and competitors seize the opportunities - putting your company's reputation and business at risk.

In today's complex and evolving business environment, businesses are increasingly susceptible to disruptions. Crisis management is crucial in ensuring minimal impact and recovery.

This workshop will teach the principles of crisis communication, how to come up with a plan for your company, and how to craft a message effectively.
