Risk management preparation is critical for any event. Before you have to react to an emergency, prepare a plan for critical communication. Plan not only what to communicate, but how to communicate.

Risk management is an important part of planning for business.  It is a process for identifying, assessing, and prioritizing risks of different kinds.  Once the risks are identified, the Risk Manager can create a plan to minimize or eliminate the impact of negative events.  There are many different type of risk that risk management plans can mitigate.  Common risks include things like accidents during a conference, fires, tornadoes, earthquakes, and other natural disasters. Come and join us to learn more.
