What is the webinar content?

The Drill Crisis Simulator is an online crisis management technology, developed by crisis management experts. Based around a custom SaaS portal, the Drill portal is an interactive, real-time crisis immersion simulator, that replicates the decision-making and publishing challenges of customised crisis scenarios to test, train and upgrade crisis management skills. The goal of The Drill is to teach the methodological steps that empower professionals to handle crisis, disaster, emergency and issues communication.
