Beechworth PRIA Crisis Event


A crisis can occur when you least expect it. It’s usually a case of when, not if. The important question is are you ready and capable of dealing with the range of possible scenarios that could threaten your organisation, no matter how unlikely you think they might be to occur?

Preparing for a crisis is like preparing for your most important game day. It takes strategy, practice, discipline, team building and perhaps most importantly, commitment.

In November, you have the rare opportunity to head to regional Victoria to join a crisis simulation and learn from crisis management expert, David Hawkins in the old Beechworth Gaol. PRIA is providing this important workshop regionally based CEOs, board directors or key decision-makers and your communications or PR staff can consolidate their knowledge and skills through direct experience. You will be given an overview of crisis management, receive a briefing and then work through a simulation.

This is a rare opportunity to experience such a simulation in a group setting in the Old Beechworth Gaol with a crisis expert. In an extensive and much awarded career, David has won more than 40 national and international awards for his work. He has first hand experience having advised on the Cranbourne landfill methane crisis, Black Saturday Fires, the Mars chocolate bar extortion case and a range of lesser known crises involving OHS issues, union disputes, fraud, sexual misconduct to name a few. David is part of the Prime Minister’s Cyber Security Taskforce.

He is an experienced and engaging facilitator who he will share his 30 years of experience and learnings to ensure participants leave the session with a clear understanding of what they need to do to improve their crisis preparedness.
