BCCT cordially invites you to an evening briefing on Crisis Management at on Wednesday 19 June at British Business Centre. The event is free to all. Food and drinks are provided. 

The onset of a crisis event can present a wide range of potentially negative impact scenarios to any business, and this can occur from a number of potential sources. Natural or geopolitical risks will rapidly cascade into a number of major problems if businesses are not adequately prepared to tackle the initial and ongoing crisis management phases; particularly regarding decision making and communicating with key stakeholders. Demonstrating the value of a proactive design in Southeast Asia, where the local business mindset is fundamentally reactive, is of benefit to anyone responsible or accountable during a crisis.

Speaker is Chris Horton, Director of Security, Aviation Service Asia (Thailand) Ltd. He will talk about an introduction to crisis management including:

  • How a crisis can impact a business
  • Defining and prioritizing a crisis
  • First response protocols & meeting agendas
  • Suggested team composition
  • Classifying an incident
  • Notification and escalation processes
  • Venue and information management
  • Communicating with stakeholders
  • Post crisis activities
  • Suggested supporting templates
