The crisis management and business continuity conference designed to prepare you for challenges and threats to your business in the modern world.

Experiences of Crises

Hear cross-industry case studies and perspectives from those who have been through the storm. Swap insight with a wide variety of professionals in crisis management, business continuity, compliance, legal and corporate communications. 

Business Culture & Ethics

Understand the wider ethical context in which crises happen. This talk will consider the importance for business leaders, including general counsel, to make a business culture which will be able to weather crises and reputational storms.

Training for the Worst

Discuss with other leaders how to best train your team and embed strategies that stand up under pressure. Consider whether compliance or reactivity should be the priority in the moment. 

Communicating Disaster & Striking the Right Tone

Examine how you can best communicate different messages to different parties (the company itself, customers, regulators, shareholders, etc). 

Understand the key communication steps to take during a crisis. 

Learn how crisis communication has changed how you make a statement: slowness of a print deadline, short wait for articles to be posted to a website, and now often just minutes to respond before Twitter takes the reins.

Managing Internal Revelations

In the age of #MeToo, disruptive CEOs, and every employee having social media at their fingertips, sometimes the biggest crises are homegrown. 

Walk through how an internal revelation should be managed, especially when the world is watching. 

Live Scenario: Simulating the Business Wide Impact of Cyber Attacks

This session will simulate the cascade of commercial consequences that follow a catastrophic breach. Expert panelists will explain how the shock, speed, and ambiguity of a large data breach can paralyse. You'll be invited to comment and vote as the simulation progresses, considering issues like:

  • Triage: where to deploy limited resources
  • Collaboration: who to involve and call on for support
  • Values: how to make urgent decisions 


Incredibly informative. Incredibly varied. Incredibly beneficial.
