Planning for business resilience has never been easy, but today’s planners are faced with far more complexity than ever. New technology, highly dispersed teams, broadband inequities, and multi-generational differences have created an unprecedented communication environment of fragmented channel choices and lots of confusion. In this lively, highly interactive workshop, participants will explore the realities of a modern-day communication environment with a lot of variables and nuance. Participants attending this session will leave with:
– A big picture understanding of the complexities of multi-channel communications
– Top ten shifts in communication etiquette that applies to emergency communications
– Top ten shifts in human behavior that will impact people’s reactions to any plan implementation
– An action list of to-dos that will increase your plan’s effectiveness
