A corporate crisis can come in many shapes and sizes. Regardless of the form it takes, every crisis has the potential to harm a company’s reputation, threaten its license to operate, and disrupt the continuity of its business. During this session, experts from FTI Consulting will provide an overview of the disaster lifecycle – from preparedness and mitigation to response and recovery – and how companies can prepare for a disruption to their operations as well as the implications of a disaster or emergency event. Attendees will also learn why a company’s communications strategies and operational considerations must be fully integrated throughout the management of a crisis, including media engagement, relationships with stakeholders, and reputation management. FTI Consulting is a global business advisory firm that brings together in-house corporate communications, government affairs, risk management, business continuity personnel, and legal counsel to design and implement emergency response plans.
