Event Risk Management Training

Develop a customized risk assessment and crisis response playbook that is replicable for all company meetings and events.

The purpose of the 4.5 hour interactive training is to understand your organization’s duty of care to keep all attendees safe and to develop risk management processes, procedures and tools which can be integrated into each type of meeting or event design.

This process begins with assessing your true state of preparedness to mitigate meeting crises and fulfill the organization’s duty of care. Using crisis scenario exercises, participants will understand how to set up a replicable risk management strategy for different types of events, so their whole team will know what to do in the first ten minutes of a crisis.

Our event risk management training includes a copy of the Meeting and Event Risk Management Guide, with templates and checklists for a vulnerability study, crisis response plans, crisis simulation exercises, crisis communication plan with sample messaging and recovery plan.

The main learner outcomes include:


Develop a written assessment of the organization’s current state of preparedness.


Understand the 4 legal obligations to meet duty of care plus the 6-stage methodology for meeting managers to integrate into their meeting design


Implement a vulnerability study and impact analysis to identify potential risks for all types of meetings and events


Design and develop a replicable risk management playbook for your organization. The playbook includes:

  • How to develop a risk management policy
  • How to ready your resources, beginning in the RFP stage
  • Develop a crisis response plan for each identified foreseeable crisis
  • Design the crisis communication strategy, with a decision tree and participant messaging plan
  • Rehearse crisis scenarios in a pre-event and onsite setting
