SESSION DESCRIPTION
CORE Training: Risk Management

Tony Clark will bring his 25 years of experience, a unique casino surveillance view of operational risk and a passion for the business to deliver an engaging, contemporary and relevant educational experience to CORE Training.  In this session Tony will explore risk management and crisis mitigation and the impact and resolution of a catastrophic event from liability and litigation to general and overall preparedness. Some of the topics covered will include: a) How to prepare for the inevitable and the plans you should have in place.  b) Best practices for when an incident occurs and the preparation and evidence chain needed for a rock solid case. c) How to actively prepare for an incident as a team and the communication factors required before, during and after a crisis arises.  d) How to protect your business from the public relations aftermath that will arise from a crisis event. As Tony reminds us, it’s not the factor of IF incidents will occur but WHEN.
