On day-three (October 7th) of the 6th Annual International Crisis Management Conference, Ashley Goosman, MBCP, MBCI, MPA, Founder, DisasterEmpire.com, will present: A Collaborative Crisis Management Approach for Large Organizations.

In this presentation, Ashley will share her thoughts on how and why crisis management in large organizations is evolving. Additionally, in the talk, she will highlight the importance of soft skills for crisis leaders.

“I am looking forward to speaking at ICMC again. The caliber of crisis training and presenters is always top-notch. I always learn something beneficial that I can integrate into my program. It is an amazing venue to connect with colleagues in crisis management from across the globe. Some of the best contacts I made over the years were from networking with speakers and colleagues at the ICMC conference.”
