Crisis Management Training

Crisis Management Training

In today’s dynamic business landscape, organisations must be well-prepared to navigate unforeseen challenges and disruptions and to do this, there must be comprehensive business crisis management training in place.

Whether you manage a premier office complex, a shopping centre, a stadium, an airport or any other large, high profile asset, it’s essential that you and your team know how to react to any major crisis or incident.

Why? Because having an effective strategy or contingency plan in place can reduce any potential damage to your property and harm to your customers, your staff, and your business or assets.

Essentially it can make all the difference between you getting your business or asset up and running again quickly – or not getting it back at all.

But it’s not just about developing the state of mind where you and your staff are ready for anything. It’s also about having the knowledge and the skills to be able to put that state of mind – and your plans – into action fast.

RED5 from Kiasu Crisis Management can do just that.

RED5 Crisis Management Training

RED5 from Kiasu Crisis Management is a series of five training courses designed to give you and your people the skills, the knowledge, the expertise, and the hands-on experience they need to react when it matters most.

Each of the five training courses within RED5 offers increasing levels of intensity, and are aimed at different groups of staff with different responsibilities.

It means that once your organisation includes trained staff from all levels of RED5, you can rest assured that you’ll have exactly the right structure in place to deal with anything that is thrown at you.

What makes RED5 different from other crisis management courses is that it’s finely tuned to fit the way you and your people think. And, because it’s delivered by serious players in the industry, the peace of mind it offers is second to none.

For example, with each RED5 course, you can expect input from:

  • Existing high level services staff
  • Recently retired key services personnel who have experience in planning for huge events such as the London Olympics and other high profile multi-agency events
  • Legal experts with un-parelled experience
  • Media experts from TV and Radio

This level of training encompasses various aspects such as business continuity planning, disaster recovery, and compliance with regulations like Martyn’s Law and Protect Duty Legislation. In order to equip your professionals with these necessary skills, business crisis management training is something we offer at Kiasu Crisis Management as a critical component of organisational planning.

Business crisis management training goes beyond knowledge, while this is of course a staple part of training we also go about training by offering practical insights and hands-on experiences with scenario training to prepare individuals and teams for real-world situations.

No other crisis management training course offers the same breadth of experience, specialist knowledge, and high profile leaders as RED5.
