  • (1888PressRelease) October 30, 2010 - Steelhenge Consulting, a leading provider of crisis management and business continuity consultancy, announces that Managing Director Dominic Cockram has had a paper accepted by the organisers of the BCM World Conference and will speak on the subject of "Leadership in Crisis." Dominic's presentation will be on the morning of 3rd November 2010, the first day of the conference in London, and will draw upon recent examples of crisis management responses to illustrate the need for careful crisis leadership training and preparation of senior executives.

    "We're very proud to announce that Dominic will be a speaker at the BCM World Conference, as it demonstrates the recognition he has as athought leader in crisis management and crisis leadership," commented Isobel Nicholas, Director of Communications for Steelhenge. "Dominic proposed the topic to the organisers to raise awareness of the need to improve the way we prepare executives for the crisis leadership role, as opposed to everyday leadership. Guiding a company through a crisis, one which is often played out under the scrutiny of 24h media, requires a very different skill set to running a company on a day to day basis."

    "Dominic will explore how it's becoming increasingly recognised that whilst some people have the natural attributes to be a good crisis leader, they still need to have specific competencies refined through crisis leadership training and rehearsal to perform at their best," explained Isobel. "Nothing else can prepare them for a real crisis, and the last thing that anyone wants is for them to have to learn 'on the hoof' during a real crisis event putting the outcome at risk. Ultimately, a well led and managed crisis response not only minimises the impact on an organisation, but can also enhance its reputation in the public eye," Isobel concluded. "There have been a number of high profile events this year and Dominic's presentation is very timely."
