Crisis Training and Simulations

The heat of battle is no time to be testing a crisis plan or, for that matter, the people who will have to execute it. Our crisis training and simulation programs put plans and people through their paces to reduce the chance of surprises when a crisis actually hits.

Unlike other crisis training providers, we don’t believe in off-the-shelf approaches. Each training we do is customized to reflect the client’s past crisis experiences, the experience and abilities of its crisis team, the scenarios they are likely to face and a host of other factors. Options include seminars to introduce managers to basic principles of crisis management and tabletop crisis “games” that can be incorporated into other corporate meetings, as well as multi-day live crisis drills that replicate real-time interactions with media, bloggers, activists, regulators, customers, unions and others and force participants to weigh complex decisions in real time under conditions of escalating stress.
