VIRTUAL SALON: ‘Crisis Management at the Board Level: Crisis Case Studies’

June 27 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm PDT

It’s not if your board will face a crisis, it’s when. Today’s boards must be prepared for all types of crises. While it’s not unusual for us to see news headlines of major company crises, understanding how to be prepared, how to respond, and how to mitigate the fallout of a crisis is critical for current board directors and aspiring directors alike.

This is a special Virtual Salon series, led by Crisis Management and Board Governance expert Andrea Bonime-Blanc. Join Andrea as she decodes a series of crisis case studies, including the ongoing Boeing crisis and well-known Volkswagen case. She’ll actively engage you to help you answer, “What would I do if faced with similar circumstances?” and guide you to understanding the broader impact of a crisis, including sentiment from key stakeholders, possible changes to legislation, and much more
