EACD Regional Debate in Sweden

Tuesday 03 December 2013
European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC)

The EACD is happy to invite you to our upcoming Regional Debate in Stockholm on December 3rd, which will take place on Tuesday, December 3rd from 10am until 12am at  the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).
Years of hard work and efforts to build trust can be shattered in seconds when the unforeseen strikes, with even minor crises causing major damages to an organisation. An organisation should be prepared for dealing with a crisis because it is not a question of “if”, but “when” a scandal or accident hits your business. Crisis communications is a critical aspect of crisis management. It won’t stop the fire, but it can prevent it from spreading and limit the damage it causes. With this in mind, the event will feature presentations by Damien Phillips, Joakim Kellner and Claus Grue, Coordinator of the EACD Regional Group Sweden, who will also moderate the subsequent question and answer session.
We look forward to welcoming our speakers:
