Crisis Communications & Media Response Training for Today’s Leaders

Grand Kemang Hotel, Jakarta |  21 September 2011 | Rp. 4.000.000,-/peserta

This critically acclaimed seminar was developed by Richard Brundage, the widely recognized international crisis communications expert, author of the book, “The Heart In Communicating”, former TV news anchor, producer and director whose programs have appeared on national television.

His “live-on-camera” seminar, “Crisis Communications and Media Response Training for Today’s Leaders” has received standing ovations around the world. .  From medical, corporate, legal and educational professionals to government, association executives, and industry leaders, Brundage has trained some of the nation’s top executives with his insightful, intensive and practical techniques.  His uniquely supportive workshops yield immediate and lasting results for all who participate.

He was recently selected by the State Department to train new U.S. Ambassadors, and was the only crisis communicator in North America to be featured in the 60-minute television special, “Global Risk Management”.  His message extends far beyond responding to the media:  It is “new millennium thinking” about how we all communicate with each other.
