The following is a list and brief description of some of our most popular workshops. You can select one, or, if you are having a conference, we would be pleased to present multiple workshops of your choice. If you don’t see exactly what you’re looking for, please call us. We can design workshops to meet the needs of your school or association.
Crisis 2.0 (2 hours)
The session focuses on crisis basics-before, during, and after a crisis-and the critical elements that every school should have in place as part of its crisis preparedness. We will share our inside-out approach to managing a crisis including first steps, communications cascade (timing and audiences), types of crisis, optics, communication pain points, and proven crisis management strategies. A variety of case studies will be part of the crisis training in addition to reviewing crisis trends.
FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE WORKSHOP (30 MINUTES)
In this session, front office (facilities and security) staff will learn about their roles in a crisis. This is a short but worthwhile session that builds confidence and shows these (often overlooked) school "gatekeepers" that they are an important part of the team.
Communications TRAINING AND MESSAGING IN CRISIS TIMES (1.5 HOURS)
This session will cover crisis training which includes managing the media, communicating with parents, how to develop and deliver messages, and the critical elements of communications documents - community letter, talking points, and Q & A. Case studies will be included.
Role of the Board in a Crisis (1.5-2 HOURS)
This is a working dinner that takes a deep dive into the board's role in a crisis. We will discuss crisis preparation, board crisis guidelines, the importance of a risk register, and managing media. Interactive case studies will be conducted.
