Presentation on Crisis Management at Connecticut Conference of Independent Colleges Annual Forum

June 13, 2017 at 8:45am12:30pm

Quinnipiac University, North Haven Campus

Wiggin and Dana partner, Aaron Bayer, will be making the keynote presentation, together with representatives of the Global Strategy Group, at the annual forum of the Connecticut Conference of Independent Colleges. The presentation, entitled "This is Not a Drill - Planning For and Communicating During a Crisis," will address the following:

A crisis can arise on a college or university campus unexpectedly and quickly – sometimes in a matter of hours or minutes.  It can have profound and lasting implications for the institution and its leaders, faculty, students, alumni, and other constituencies.  But it is possible to plan for a crisis, and to follow that plan when responding and managing the risks it presents.  This session will explore how to do just that. 

Aaron Bayer, partner and head of the education practice group at Wiggin and Dana LLP, and Roy Occhiogrosso, Managing Director, and Carter Johnson, Vice President of Communications, at Global Strategy Group, will review crisis planning, including how to develop and implement an effective communications strategy and how to recognize and manage legal risks. The team will go through a hypothetical crisis, working interactively with conference attendees.
