Subject matter experts Giles Carter (Air New Zealand) and Marc Armitage (Intelligent Risks) will conduct a lunchtime session on Crisis Management in Complex Organisations.

Giles will discuss the specific implementation of Crisis Management principles in large and complex organisations – in this case Air New Zealand and the benefits and challenges associated.
