Save the date(s)! On November 28, 29 and 30 our team organizes a Crisis Resilience Week in Ghent, Belgium. The series of events is centered around three keywords we always see coming back in our evaluation forms: practicality, innovation and network. While we can’t reveal the full planning just yet, we can already give away a little sneak peek. We’re very much looking forward to it. If you do too, you can preregister for the event(s) via this link.

Tales from the Trenches
We kick off the Crisis Resilience Week on Wednesday November 28. We have the opportunity to welcome a few of our international colleagues from the CIP Institute, a non-profit organization that was co-founded by PM. We look forward to exchanging knowledge on complex interactive processes (hence the name CIP) and having a constructive biannual meeting on the future of the CIP Institute. In the evening we’re launching a brand new concept: Tales from the Trenches! After each training, lecture or workshop people always stress that they liked our stories. This shouldn’t be surprising: stories are generally more appealing than often abstract theory. They demonstrate how theoretical concepts are used in the real world and prove that you don’t need an army of crisis experts to roll out an impressive crisis response. They inspire. During the Tales from the Trenches event, we browse through our team’s acute crisis activations of 2018 – of course with all necessary respect for confidentiality. Afterwards there’s time left for some drinks and talks with other attendees and speakers.
