Crisis Management & Modern Slavery

Is your company ready to manage and overcome a crisis?

Our intensive 3.5-hour workshop will equip you with the right tools to anticipate and prepare for a crisis, and teach you how to use crisis management principles effectively. A realistic modern slavery crisis scenario will be used so participants can practice these principles. 

WHEN: November 1st, 2019, 8 AM – 12 PM    (8 – 8:30 AM Registration and networking breakfast. Workshop will start at 8:30 AM)

WHERE: Baker McKenzie, One Taikoo Place 979 King’s Road, Quarry Bay, Hong Kong (13th Floor)

OVERVIEW:

In situations of crisis and emergency company reputation, brand value, consumer perception and shareholder value can all be negatively impacted. Modern slavery has recently emerged as a serious reputation and business risk for companies.

Today, millions of people are living in conditions of forced labour associated with supply chains producing goods and services that make their way into the global marketplace. NGO and media’s investigations have also increased, exposing major companies’ failure to address this issue. In addition, new supply chain compliance regulations such as the U.K. and Australian Modern Slavery Acts request companies to disclose what they are doing to ensure their businesses are slavery-free.

How can a company respond effectively to a crisis? Does your company have what it takes to manage and overcome a crisis, or prevent it in the first place? How would a modern slavery crisis management action plan unfold? 

Our workshop will give you the answers.
