A View from the Trenches – A Look at Security and Best Practices

Pat Zollman, Senior Director of Global Accounts, HelmsBriscoe

Whenever I attend Risk Management  classes I am always astounded when the speaker asks the audience who has a Risk Management Plan and only a handful of people raise their hands. For most planners and event organizers this process is daunting and time consuming. Some planners tell me I have it in my head. Well I’m here to tell you that is no longer good enough. If you don’t know what to do in the first 10 minutes of a situation your not prepared. Today we will get you started on that plan with tips and strategies that put attendee safety first and help you to mitigate damages.
