Crisis Simulation Exercises

Will your crisis and business recovery planning really stand up under fire?

How do you know?

The only way to really know how you and your organization will respond to crisis is to put your practices to a pressure test. Dan’s unique Crisis Simulation Exercise offers a dynamic and interactive experience that will test your people, your processes, and yourself.

Don’t leave your ability to survive as a company to the unknown. The value of this workshop is that your people will be confident and ready when the real calamity hits.

Dan brought our administrative team a legitimate crisis scenario and was well prepared in every aspect of his consultancy. Dan pushed our thinking as the decision-makers in our school district and created an environment that encouraged engagement, problem solving, and role-playing. In the end, with advice and guidance from Dan, we were able to leave the session with solid ideas for evaluating our current systems for emergency/crisis management, to create a communications plan to use in times of crisis, and just a sense of relief that we were able to come together for a few hours as a team to discuss these important issues that often get put aside when there are no imminent emergencies.

Strategic Planning Team Retreat

Decisions made in real-time during a crisis are normally poor. That's why your decisions must be made prior to needing to make one!

• Have you formulated a plan to deal with any type of crisis that can adversely affect your income, your people, your property, and your reputation?
• Has it been communicated to your staff?
• How efficiently is it managed and will it actually work when it needs to?

Let me help you navigate the murky waters of crisis management so your organization and team will thrive when confronted with it.

How it Works:

We gather your team together in a retreat-style format and spend the time brainstorming. It’s an opportunity to define what a crisis is, how your company will be affected, what plans you have in place, and how you are currently set up to prevent, mitigate, and respond to one.

Your team will walk away with a game plan that can be immediately implemented to:

• Reduce the likelihood of perils that can be controlled
• Improve your ability to survive those that can’t
• Create a backup plan that includes getting people back to work quickly
• Decrease the burden of managing the crisis
• Save hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of time, money, resources, people, legal costs and opportunity
• Improve crisis communications
• Boost levels of technology and human redundancy
• Dramatically reduce hidden costs
• Heighten peace of mind

Strategic retreats around crisis planning include:

• A comprehensive analysis of your insurance policies
• Interviews of all key executives, directors, and managers
• 60 days unlimited access to me by your key executives to help answer questions around implementation of initiatives
• My Unleashed Resiliency crisis planning template

Fees are based on the size, scope, and complexity of a company. Contact Dan to get a formal indication.

Dan was recommended to us by our insurance broker as a resource to assist us with disaster recovery planning. Dan’s guidance helped us crystallize our somewhat vague ideas about what we would do in the event of a disaster, into a well thought out (and written) Crisis Prevention & Disaster Recovery Plan. We appreciated Dan’s ability to combine his subject matter expertise with an easy to work with approach. Hopefully we will never experience a disaster, but there is great peace of mind knowing we have a plan in place for that eventuality.

Dan has worked with our staff to refine our Company Safety Standards and policies. He has prepared and presented clear and concise programs on various safety topics relevant to our business. The employees are encouraged to be active participants in the discussions... It has been a pleasure working with Dan and we look forward to a continued working relationship with him.

Infrastructure Crisis Pre-Planning

The ability to survive and thrive out of a crisis starts with being prepared. The best way to be prepared is by pre-planning any potential event that could suspend operations, threaten cash flow, and damage your reputation.

Preplanning is a process that gives all stakeholders to a property or special event the “inside information” allowing for a more efficient and timely response which will help save lives, property, money; and help to manage risk. Dan partners with Blazemark, which incorporates Standards from NFPA 1620 to gather information that includes physical and site considerations, occupant considerations, water supplies, fire protection systems, special hazards, emergency operations, and pre-incident plan testing and maintenance.

When seconds count, having this information at the tip of your fingers through our cloud based software will make the difference when it matters most.
