ACCESS New York Metro

Risk assessment, avoidance and management is a way of thinking about the production of an event that starts at the beginning of the planning process and is incorporated into implementation at each step.  The objective is to protect yourself, your company, your colleagues, your clients, and your guests from the consequences of things gone wrong.  Done properly, risk management is far more than just a checklist.

About This Class:

We now live in a world where we must take into consideration the worst case scenario when producing an event.  Shootings and Acts of Terror, Natural Disasters, Political Protest and Unrest, Financial Crises, Disease and Epidemics...  How can you possibly avoid it all?  The truth is that you cannot.  But what you can do is start to change the way you think and plan so that you are properly prepared to react and best protect yourself, your company, and your guests when facing a disastrous event scenario.

We will discuss how to think about these situations sooner in your planning process.  It's not just up to the "planner" to take risk into consideration -- the entire team needs to be mindful, plan ahead and communicate with each other.

Join us on October 24th at The Whiskey Factory to hear what Jennifer Scott Clare, CSEP, has learned through 20+ years in the event industry, and to start an important conversation about planning ahead.
