Goodmans Presents: Navigating A Perfect Storm

October-26-2011

Area Corporate Finance and Securities, White Collar Risk Management and Investigations

Details

Whether it is a fraud, financial uncertainty, a major accident, or any other profoundly challenging circumstance, managing in a crisis is not easy.  Our panellists will work through a crisis fact scenario to provide practical and concrete advice on how to make good decisions under pressure, including tips on how to effectively communicate with senior management, the board, shareholders and other stakeholders, regulators, the media and the public.  They will also address the steps you can take in the calm before the potential storm such as identifying risk factors and putting together a crisis management plan to preserve good governance, communications and to mitigate losses in a worst case scenario, as well as when and how to seek outside advice. 

Panellists: 

Christa C. Wessel of McCain Foods Limited and Geoffrey Rowan of Ketchum Public Relations Canada
Stephen Halperin, Celia Rhea, John Keefe and Rob Chadwick of Goodmans LLP
