Crises are a fact of life. All Organisations are Vulnerable to Crises. The question is not IF, but WHEN a Crisis occurs, what should an organisation do?
This session explored the issues around crisis communications and effective communication strategies. What should organisations do BEFORE, DURING, and AFTER a crisis to ensure that the company’s reputation, brand, and community relations remain intact?

In November 2021, AMCHAM T&T collaborated with EY to conduct a pulse survey amongst the C-Suites, and Executive Directors/Management across 11 industries. We received 91 responses.
1) companies and the industries they operate in;
2) corporate strategy as companies evolve and adapt to the ‘new normal’;
3) talent strategy as there is a gradual return to physical work; and
4) generating confidence to grow the economy
The results of the Survey were announced by Melanie Tom - Senior Manager | Strategy and Transactions, Ernst & Young at AMCHAM T&T's Economic Outlook Forum on Wednesday, January 26, 2022.

Let's talk Business Continuity Planning.
How many of us saw our businesses grind to a halt at the onset of the pandemic?
SURVIVAL in today's highly disruptive business setting means that leaders must have
a BCP-ready for any disaster or crisis situation.
AMCHAM T&T hosted this interactive 3-Day BCP workshop as a peer-learning experience to
share knowledge and good practice amongst private sector partners.
In the end, companies were better prepared and fully ready to
maintain business operations during any disruptive period.
