F24 AG convinces with its panel discussion at the BCI World Virtual Event 2021
Crises do not adhere to country borders, nor do they adhere to any human-defined boundaries. The challenges organisations are facing in handling crisis situations are therefore very similar: Unstructured communication, critical IT facilities that are no longer functioning or unclear responsibilities can make it hard to manage a critical situation successfully. However, the very same crisis can be handled with a different focus due to global differences in working and communication culture. Learn from these shared experiences and different perspectives on crisis management from all over the world.
For more than 20 years we at F24 have been assisting clients worldwide on how to overcome those problems and successfully manage crisis situations. Benjamin Jansen, Vice President Solutions ENS & CM, moderates and guides you through experiences that will give insights on the importance of different crisis management practices and what unites successful crisis management globally. This includes lessons on efficient collaboration between multiple locations, like a Norwegian aviation company with its 45 airports, as well as interesting insights from a scientific point of view.
