Crisis Management Conference 2014 (CMC 2014)
Coherent Crisis Management: Preparedness, Response & Communications
CMC 2014 will bring together experts in Crisis Preparedness, Response and Communications to discuss how their organisations are protecting their people, performance and reputation from the impact of crises, incidents and major disruptions by implementing a coherent Crisis Management Capability. The high profile panel of confirmed speakers includes the Heads of Risk, Technical Services, Communications and Business Continuity at UBS, BBC, the John Lewis Partnership, Network Rail, O2 and the University of Liverpool. The UK Cabinet Office will deliver the keynote address to mark the launch of the new British Standard in Crisis Management (BS 11200).
Why is this conference important? The frequency of crises is increasing; organisations suffering setbacks of newsworthy proportions are becoming commonplace. The agenda addresses issues critical to helping organisations prevent, prepare and respond to crises to ensure they survive and thrive, as well as creating a unique opportunity for delegates to share views and experience:
*Insights into real-life experience of managing crises; what worked and what did not.
*The challenges of implementing internal crisis preparedness within an organisation.
*Creating a coherent crisis management capability in a global corporation.
*How to link your crisis management and crisis communications effectively in crisis response.
*How to manage the speed and flow of information in a 24/7 environment.
*Discussion of how organisations should learn from crises.
*Crisis management best practice – what’s in the newly published British Standard
Conference Chairman, Dominic Cockram said, "The conference is a unique opportunity for those wanting to take part in discussion of the latest Crisis Management thinking and to share practical experience with other crisis management professionals from industry, government and academia. Last year's sell-out conference was described as 'a cut above the rest, an event not to be missed by anyone involved in crisis management' and we are delighted to respond to requests for it to become an annual event with the announcement of CMC 2014. We have drawn together another high calibre panel of speakers and look forward to gaining a unique insight into how a range of organisations deal with the urgent challenge of crisis management."
The conference will be held under the Chatham House Rule to promote freedom of discussion.
