ContinuitySA breakfast focuses on managing corporate crises

As part of Business Continuity Awareness Week, ContinuitySA are hosting a breakfast session entitled “Taming the pythons and the cobras – a case study-based approach to avoiding a corporate crisis, and getting out of one as quickly as possible if a crisis strikes.”

During this 90 minute multimedia session the most common sources of corporate crises will be explored and why they are more likely to be slow-creep issues like pythons.

Issues addressed will include:
* The real costs of getting it wrong and why best practice crisis communications is often counter-intuitive for corporate leadership;
* Balancing legal and public relations counsel; and
* Stress-tested, practical guidelines for building, sustaining and defending your most valuable strategic asset – your reputation – when the media, activists, customers, the regulators and your own employees are banging at your door.

The talk will take place on Tuesday 18 March 2014, from 08:30 to 10:30 in Johannesburg. For more information please e-mail cindy.bodenstein@continuitysa.co.za.
