A crisis event can happen at any time to any company. In today's competitive market, can you afford not to have crisis preparedness in place?
Today, companies face many challenges, such as mergers and acquisitions, inexperience and disconnect, restructuring and adapting to a volatile world.
These challenges, along with a general lack of appreciation for the investment required to be crisis ready, can all have an impact on crisis preparedness.
For a truly effective crisis management team and functional crisis preparedness system, you need structure, skillset, and mindset. These make up our crisis performance framework. Depending on the needs of an organisation and level of crisis preparedness maturity, we can use the performance framework to support an organisation.

We offer bespoke and integrated crisis preparedness solutions, including customised crisis management training, crisis planning, crisis response exercises and simulations, crisis leadership and role-specific coaching.

We have had the pleasure of working with our member Total E&P Denmark (TEPDK) since 2017, helping them build and maintain the confidence and competence of their Emergency Management Team (EMT). We recently returned to Denmark to resume this training programme and further develop the skills of TEPDK EMT Members.
