Training course overview

Do you wish to be that Strategic Crisis Leader who can demonstrate the ability to function under pressure, have sufficient crisis experience, full confidence of the Board and to have the ability and authority to make crucial on-the-spot decisions within the organisation´s policies? If so, then this training course is for you.

The term “Crisis” has become synonymous and popular in social media, government and industry, used for everything from simple disputes to acts of terrorism. Unfortunately, most of what passes for crisis management can be reactive and ad hoc, often there is little advance planning or untested planning, this is precisely what crisis management should not be.
