Mobilize your corporate leadership team on May 8 for a powerful crisis management and communications presentation at the Mt. Washington Conference Center in Baltimore. The Crisis Cliff, a riveting half-day presentation by nationally acclaimed experts will provide business and organization leaders with the necessary tactical skills for building, strengthening and defending their reputations during critical times of need.
I95 BUSINESS presents its first Business Leadership Series, The Crisis Cliff, with presentations from seasoned crisis leadership expert and strategist, Rob Weinhold of the Fallston Group, and award-winning television journalist and media management expert, Marianne Banister. Keynote speaker, Ed Norris, a former law enforcement professional and current host of WJZ-FM 105.7 The Fan, will speak from his personal and professional crisis-related experiences. The event is designed to present leaders with the concepts to understand what risk is, how to plan for the unexpected, and the importance of communication, response and resilient leadership.
“This is an exciting opportunity for leaders who want to sharpen their crisis management and communication skills and strategies,” said Principal of the Fallston Group, Rob Weinhold. “The Crisis Cliff event will be an innovative platform for executives to begin crafting an effective crisis strategy, which will help to build and defend their reputations over time. Attendees will learn how to turn adversity into advantage.”
“Having personally dealt with a crisis in the legal and public courts of opinion, I can attest to the importance of protecting one’s reputation and the necessity for proactive and reactive crisis planning and strategies,” said Baltimore radio personality, Ed Norris. “With reputation being the number one concern of executives today, The Crisis Cliff is a must attend event for corporate executives and marketing communication professionals across all industries.”
The event will take place Thursday, May 8, 2014 at the Mt. Washington Conference Center in Baltimore. A limited amount of early bird tickets are available for $155 through April 7. Single tickets will increase to $185 starting April 8, with adjusted rates for nonprofits and groups of five or more. Sponsorship packages that include various marketing and networking benefits are still available.
“In a crisis, you and your company will be remembered one of two ways: how well the crisis was handled or how badly you dropped the ball. There are no do-overs in crisis communication,” said media management expert, Marianne Banister. “How you deliver your message is as important as the message itself. It’s essential for every organization to have a well-crafted, strategic plan and know how to put it into action.”
