Special Message for Meeting Planners and Conference Organizers

If you’re a meeting planner, conference organizer or you work in the events industry, then this is an important message for you.

That’s because right now, the Coronavirus frenzy is pretty much in full swing. And you probably know this all too well.

We know there are few industries that are feeling this as hard as you are. You may be dealing with cancellations, worried attendees and a big hit to your registrations.

You may not be sure how to talk with your attendees, vendors, speakers, sponsors and everyone else involved without adding to the ongoing panic.

You may not be sure what the right message to send to everyone is…of if there’s a right message at all. And you may not be sure just what in the world the next few months have in store for you.

First of all, if you’re feeling scared, stressed and worried then know that this is perfectly normal and you’re not alone. No one could have predicted an event like this to come along, slap us in the face, and threaten to topple over our very foundation.

Second of all, Chip Massey, former FBI hostage negotiator, and Jeff Hurt, adult learning expert, and Adele Cehrs, crisis communications expert, author and Wall Street Journal contributor are here to help. We know the waters are shaky and the future is uncertain.

That’s why we’re hosting a free AMA 60-minute Zoom call every Tuesday at 1pm. 

We want to give you the very communications skills we use to handle the worst emergencies – because there’s never been a more important time to have them. In this call we’ll answer any question you have about how to communicate about your event…the best way to react and respond to new developments…how to restore and retain a great relationship with attendees and others…and more.

The first call is March 24th at 1pm EDT, so click here to register now to make sure you don’t miss it.

And if you’re wondering why we’re holding this call…It’s because we’ve built our entire careers around helping people get through times just like this.

In Chip’ Massey’s 22 years as an FBI Special Agent and hostage/crisis negotiator…And Adele Cehrs extensive experience working in crisis planning and management for companies like DuPont, Lockheed Martin and (the very relevant) Infectious Disease Society of America. Last, but not least, Jeff Hurt’s masterful strategy and design expertise for events and adult learning.

We’ve built up a specific skill set specially made for crises, chaos, emergencies and high-stress situations – whether it’s a tense hostage negotiation or global pandemic.

To put it bluntly – we’re no strangers to when the sh*t hits the fan.

So if you’re feeling stressed, worried or just unsure about what to do or how to handle what comes next, let us help you navigate these troubling times and give you the resources and answers you need to manage this.

Click here to register for the call and join us on this session. We promise to be as much help to you as we can during this 60-minute time frame.

And if you have any questions about the call itself (or anything in specific you’d like us to address) then reply to this email and let me know.

Talk soon,

Adele and Chip
