Get a Behind-the-Scenes Look at Critical Issues Management at the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games

In Events, public relations on January 13, 2010 at 6:49 pm

Every four years the world is captivated by the largest two-week international sporting event in history, and each Olympic host country raises the bar just a little bit in bringing to the Olympic Games that host country’s message of unity which sporting brings.  The magic of the Olympics is not without years of planning and preparation. One of the more important behind the scenes roles is the risk management planning and preparation for an international event of this magnitude.

On the eve of the Olympics CPRS Calgary is hosting a breakfast with John Larsen, acting as the military’s Senior Liaison Officer to the Government Operations Centre – Government Partners Public Affairs Group (GPPAG) for the 2010 Olympics. In this role, John works with a team which advises and provides real-time counsel to Government and Olympics officials on potential critical issues facing the Games.

There are many links to corporate communications’ emergency response teams in the way this Olympic team of highly skilled issues management professionals are organizing themselves to tackle risk and crisis communications issues potentially affecting the Games.

CPRS Calgary invites you to come attend this presentation. Everyone is welcome. Save your seat today and register online!  We look forward to seeing you there.
