We look forward to welcoming you at our 5th international conference: “Better face it – All management is crisis management. Resilient organisations cope with the future’s challenges.”
This year’s conference will take place on Friday 8 June 2018 in Madrid. If you are interested in joining, please save the date and sign up for news. We will inform you about the programme, speakers, fees and further details in due time.
As we did last year in Lisbon we opt for a formula with keynote speakers and workshops and will work with 3 tracks.
Track 1: Polarization / the new normal? Are we facing a society were fake news, mass manipulation techniques and propaganda are the norm?
Track 2: Cyber challenges / can we be prepared? Our fast moving digitizing environment is challenging us all. How can we benefit, and yet be safe navigating this cyber future?
Track 3: Business, crisis and resilience / Today’s managers live in the fast track! All management feels like crisis management. What are the lessons to be learned?
The aim of these workshops is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners in risk management, crisis management, risk communication, crisis communication or any other domain related to risk and crisis. They are a platform to share knowledge and reflect on each other’s work and offer a unique opportunity to work together with worldwide peers.
Very excited about our upcoming event, we look forward to welcoming you at our 4th international conference on “Managing Crises Today – Insights On Dealing With Complexity”. This year’s conference will take place on Friday 16 June 2017 8.30am-5pm at the University of Lisbon – Faculdade de Psicologia. If you are interested in joining, please save the date and sign up for news. We will inform you about the programme, speakers, fees, flight discounts and further details in due time.
Since our formula of keynote speakers and workshops was highly appreciated by the attendees of our past conferences, we are continuing on the same path. Our ambition this year is to provide even more participation during interactive workshops since this remains one of the main suggestions by the attendees of past editions. The aim of these workshops is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners in risk management, crisis management, risk communication, crisis communication or any other domain related to risk and crisis.
More webinars are coming up in the next months! Each webinar will be organised and presented by one or more CIP members.
The aim of these webinars is to enable discussion and exchange of knowledge, expertise and ideas amongst the CIP members on current and emergent topics. A webinar can address any specific or general challenge.
The climate change adaptation and the higher frequency and financial consequences of disasters, are amongst the factors that boost the utilization of the concept of resilience way beyond its original scientific definition.
Four years ago, after the shooting incident in shopping centre De Ridderhof in Alphen aan den Rijn where 7 people where killed, Dick van Gooswilligen started to built the Crisis Communications Team (CCT) Dutch National Police. In march 2012 he had selected 70 communication professionals for this team. All of them are working at the communication departements in the regions. Working voor the CCT is an additonal task. Since then the CCT has been deployed 30 times. Thanks to to their working method – Analysis, Advice, Approach and Effect Assement – (crisis) communications is now embedded as a core task within the police’s operational proces.
Although counter productive, the gap between communications research and application continues to widen. Roger Kasperson accurately claims that this disparity cannot be overcome by a linear bridge, but a complex system of web like processes.
On January 29th 2015, a man wielding a fake gun has been arrested in a studio of Dutch news broadcaster NOS, causing the main evening bulletins to be cancelled. That evening, approximately 60.000 tweets have been posted online about the situation. Continue reading →
Our conference programme in Amsterdam consists of lectures by international keynote speakers, but we also make room for various workshops by CIP members. These six workshop were reviewed and selected from the proposals that we received as a result of our Call for Workshops.
At the CIP Conference in Amsterdam on Friday 3 July 2015 we will feature a number of 90-minute workshops or presentations. The aim of these workshops is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners in risk management, crisis management, risk communication, crisis communication and other domains related to the CIP framework.
In this presentation, Nigel Lightfoot will use the evolution of a number of crises from a personal experience to illustrate the challenges of working during periods of uncertainty and the essential leadership characteristics that are required to successfully emerge and recover from such crises.
