As of September 29, we are moving the location of this seminar FROM the Cuyahoga County Board of Health in Parma TO the Middleburg Heights Community Center, located at 16000 East Bagley Road in Middleburg Heights.  This is due to the unprecedented numbers of registrations we've received.

In the event of a crisis everyone is going to want answers.  Are you prepared?

And when that crisis happens, you will quickly find out what it means to "Feed the Beast" when the media descends upon you.

They say it takes a lifetime to build a reputation and only a few seconds to destroy one.  In a split second y ou could find yourself in a position where you need to know how to handle the media or be a public spokesperson.

In this half-day media training session, elected & government officials, police, fire and health officials will receive practical instruction about how to manage the media.

This seminar will also give leaders the tools to navigate the harsh realities of speaking to the public, media, partners and stakeholders during an intense public-safety emergency (e.g. mass casualty, pandemic flu, terrorism and other extreme situations involving

threats to life and limb).
