Risk and Crisis Management Summit: Keeping Your Company Alive  
“Something like that would never happen here.” In today’s world, we can no longer dismiss the probability of violence taking place within our own organizations. Whether in businesses, churches, or schools, risk for crisis is ever increasing. What are you doing to keep your employees alive, the financial well-being of your company alive, and to ensure “something like that would never happen here?”

In this summit, you will hear from three experts who have “been there.” Throughout their presentations, you will learn violence prevention and intervention strategies, threat assessment, and crisis management, in order to help you keep your organization alive.

On Any Given Day: Leadership Lessons from Columbine and Beyond
The tragedy at Columbine redefined the nation. Frank DeAngelis, Principal of Columbine High School during the 1999 shooting, tells his story from the events through the aftermath. This presentation reveals the leadership lessons he learned in the focus of an international firestorm. Frank’s honest, straight-forward account provides invaluable insights into managing the after-crisis with students, staff members, community members and never-ending media attention. A positive attitude and a passion for his job, allowed him to work at Columbine from 1979 to 2014. He shares how he was able to build a community that worked together for his kids; the students at Columbine High School. The takeaways from this presentation should be required reading for every leader in the nation.

The Ones Left Standing: Realistic Expectations Following Traumatic Events
Too often, unrealistic expectations regarding duration and intensity of post-event responses impede healing, resulting in long-term coping and functionality issues for those impacted. Lisa Dinhofer, MA, CT, was working in the North Tower (Tower 1) of the World Trade Center during the time of the first bombing in 1993, and was working in downtown New York City on September 11th. During her presentation, she discusses the impact of traumatic events on individuals, communities, schools and businesses. Core issues covered include the short and long-term effects of trauma, common misconceptions and myths, the costs of traumatic events within businesses and communities, when coping methods fail, tools and recommendations.

Avoiding Crisis: Stopping the Risk Before it Ever Starts
The responsibility and legal ramifications of crisis in the workplace are more prevalent today than ever before. Employee background checks are now a crucial aspect of risk management. Many employers think that they are obtaining useful criminal history results when they are not actually doing so. In this session, Scott Paler, Attorney with DeWitt Ross & Stevens S.C., discusses comprehensive analyses of background checking processes that can mitigate organizations’ risks of crisis exponentially. He will address how employers can analyze their current background checking processes, what legal “potholes” employers should try to avoid, and how to evaluate whether an insurance policy actually guards against background screening-related risks.
