Crises happen. Sometimes we have time to prepare, and other times we’re caught completely by surprise. Take COVID-19. Many of our clients are scrambling to decide whether to cancel, postpone or continue to hold their conferences. What information do you need to make a decision? Who should be involved?
Join us for a webinar on Tuesday, March 31st at 2pm Eastern as Matrix Group CEO Joanna Pineda and Bob Mellinger, Founder & President of Attainium Corp and Crisis Management expert, discuss how to face crises head on, create a game plan for when crises happen, and make sound decisions during difficult and emotionally-driven times.
