PPBI Hosts DRJ Mock Disaster PDF Print E-mail

PPBI was selected to host the DRJ Mock Disaster in Fall World 2012 conference in San Diego.

Limited to 200 participants, this exercise will prove really different.  We will be examining the use (and mis-use) of social media during a disaster.  Focusing on Twitter and Facebook, we will look at some of the pitfalls of using these media as internal communications channels, presenting the participants with a challenging scenario specifically designed to encourage thinking about social media as it applies to the office environment.

The scenario will bring a challenge to the participants.  They will be thrown into the use of ICS to manage the crisis.  Part instructional, part practice, part challenging, and all of it guaranteed to be fun.  Most importantly of all, the event will let participants learn from their peers.  Even the new practitioners will find the thought-provoking enviroment exciting.

This will be one session where you can use cell-phones, notebooks, tweeting, facebook--just like in real life.

PPBI Widget Corporation is starting their annual management retreat, motiviational event, and corporate planning session.  It kicks off at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, Sep 9th.  The surprises start even before the participants enter the meeting hall.  There are only two hundred seats available.  The CEO promises the event will have some real excitement for everyone.

Once you've signed up, we'll be sending out special instructions for following and friending so you are a full participant of the exercise.
