Business as Usual Despite the Unusual: How to Survive and Thrive Through COVID-19 Chaos

Recorded on 6 May 2020 

It’s unprecedented in both event and scale, and as a result, chaotic.

But now is your chance. Be strategic and boost your organization’s future position, while the competition awaits the recovery to begin.

Look at a snapshot of the pandemic’s probable impact; explore what advances and changes we might look forward to (and what forecasts are wrong). Research scrutinizes how one of the largest and most impacted global industries is being devastated by the situation—and indicates what should be done to recover. Case studies examine organizations on the front lines of the crisis and how they responded.

Join us to learn what leaders can expect in the near future, consider predictions about how normalcy will return and how you can use this information to leverage yourself as well as your organization. In other words, learn how you can be proactive while still reacting to the pandemic.

Here is a link to the slides for your reference.

Presenter / John Deveney is recognized internationally for crisis and issue management for hospitality and health care leaders. In 2006, Deveney was honored as “Agency Executive of the Year” by PRNews after he served as a first responder during hurricanes Katrina and Rita—from evacuation of the city to a military blockade and the aftermath—for both the tourism industry for New Orleans and the Louisiana Office of Tourism. He led the only on-site communication operation and media center that managed more than $400 million in media scrutiny in war-like conditions. In 2010, Deveney and his team created the strategy and led the team that managed the state Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism’s response to the BP oil spill. That effort reshaped public perception and preserved Louisiana’s $9.4 billion tourism industry. His agency, DEVENEY, has been named PR News’ Firm of the Year and PRWeek’s Top 5 Boutique PR Firms in the country. John is the only professional to merit the lifetime achievement recognition of PRNews’ Hall of Fame, PRSA College of Fellows and IABC Fellows.
