Our program will include a brief discussion from prominent local reporters Julie Kay from the Daily Business Review and Paul Brinkmann from the South Florida Business Journal on the fundamentals of preparing for and managing a crisis followed by a case study that each of you will have the opportunity to tackle in a simulation that includes assigned roles for four teams. Once the situation is explained, each team/table will evaluate the facts and present their findings to the group. The session promises to create a room full of adrenaline and an exchange of great ideas and commentary. Crisis communications consultant Don Silver of Boardroom Communications will moderate the session along with some of the local reporters who typically cover many of the law firm-centric disputes and news. This professional development program will help better equip marketing directors on how to advise and counsel their firms in crisis situations.
