How to Prepare For and Respond To A Pandemic or Other Crisis

This virtual program is about the best practices to prepare for and respond to any business crisis.

We have been engrossed in 'learning while doing' since early this year with the onset of the Virus Pandemic and have seen first-hand both confusion and success as the knowledge about the virus developed and the guidelines were 'tested' for effectiveness over a period of time.

Many (or most?) businesses are in crisis mode trying to coming from lockdown to a phased opening, and many will never recover.

As noted below, Edward Segal is a crisis management expert and will be facilitating this session of the LBMD about addressing a business crisis.
Participants will receive a crisis management plan template they can later customize for their company or organization and will be the basis of the morning break-out session.

Here is how the session will flow:
Best Practices for Preparing for a Crisis 
Breakout Session/Exercise
o Each Zoom room will receive a brief
    worst-case crisis scenario
o Attendees will be asked to report back
   to the group how they responded to
Large group discussion
o At the end of the breakout session, a 
   representative of each Zoom room will 
   be asked to briefly describe how they 
   responded to their scenario

Resolutionary Thinking
Focusing on solutions. Thinking creatively and tenaciously about outcomes. About what’s in your best interests. Getting matters resolved, so you can get on with what matters to you. That’s resolutionary thinking. And that’s made Shulman Rogers,  P.A., one of the largest, most respected law firms in the Washington Metropolitan Area.

In 1972, Shulman Rogers was founded on a commitment to client service. Today, the firm’s roster of highly skilled attorneys and other dedicated staff members are all guided by that same commitment. A client-first approach. A smart, efficient practice. A relentless focus on problem-solving. And an underlying compassion—for our clients and our community. It all adds up to resolutionary thinking. The kind of thinking you can count on from the people of Shulman Rogers.
