The Association for Corporate Growth Detroit, a 450-member nonprofit business organization, will host its Surviving and Thriving in Crisis breakfast on Tuesday, Feb. 11 at the Somerset Inn in Troy.
The event will begin with networking and breakfast at 7:15 a.m. and conclude at 9 a.m. It will include a panel discussion that will share insights and experiences related to crisis planning, internal and external communications, media relations, and recovery strategies.
Panelists will include Randi Berris, manager of corporate communications for DTE; Andrea Trapani, managing partner at Identity; and R.J. King, editor of DBusiness. It will be moderated by Mark Winter, founder and president of Identity.
“It’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when,” says Winter. “A round of layoffs. Sexual harassment or discrimination. A really bad quarter. Fraud or embezzlement. A high-profile lawsuit. A rogue employee. The possibilities are endless, which makes awareness and preparedness a non-negotiable.”
The event is open to the public. Registration and more information are available here.
