Crisis Management Panel

The NACD Northern California chapter leads a panel discussion about crisis readiness and response, raising these important questions:

  • How ready are your board and executives to manage a crisis? Are key players ready to work together?
  • How do you determine your “risk and readiness posture” associated with various crisis scenarios, including ones you may never have contemplated?
  • Does your company have the right governance, frameworks, communications tools, external advisors, and tactical tools (i.e., protocols, technology, security and safety procedures) in place to respond to a major crisis? How do you quickly mobilize and operate tactically when a crisis occurs?
  • How do you engage appropriately, while still protecting your organization, with key stakeholders in a major crisis, including government agencies, legislators, shareholders, employees, customers, the media (traditional and nontraditional), advocacy groups, local communities, and others?
