training and exercises
Driven by the idea that you learn best by doing, we have made crisis simulation our signature.
Tailor-made exercises, offset exercises, mediatrainings, participative conferences… We offer you a wide range of possibilities for training and coaching your teams in crisis management and communication.
Crisotech develops fictitious crisis scenarios in which you play an active role in crisis management. Each scenario incorporates dozens or even hundreds of inputs at all levels (tactical, operational, strategic), making the exercises particularly dynamic and recreating real-world conditions on a variety of themes (cyber crisis, industrial accident, terrorism, natural disaster, social crisis, etc.).
We only design training modules that we would like to take ourselves. To put an end to “classroom” training, our modules place the learner at the heart of the action.
During crisis simulation exercises, each participant has the opportunity to become aware of the issues at stake:
- shared trust,
- stress management,
- or decision-making in an emergency.
We create and run different types of crisis simulation exercises:
Major exercises :
Major” exercises are used to test the coordination and sharing of information between several organisations or several entities within the same organisation.
We increase the number of channels used (SMS, calls, emails, intranets, dedicated software, etc.).
Restricted exercises :
Tabletop exercises :
Field exercises :
Focus on the cyber crisis exercise
Preparing for a cyber crisis is no longer an option. We offer you a 360° approach so that you can react quickly on the day the crisis occurs, without panicking and in compliance with your insurance and legal obligations.
- Running an exercise for the general management’s crisis unit, the technical units (SSI – SOC) and the communication unit
- Simulated pressure (journalists, TV shows, social networks, societal pressure)
- Forensic investigation training option
- Incident response strategy and remediation
- Hot and cold feedback
We offer our customers training in how to speak out in the media, both in times of crisis and out of crisis. These courses can be run “cold” as part of an ongoing process, or “hot off the press” to prepare for a specific interview or respond to a real crisis.
Theoretical contributions on the workings of the media, the profession of journalist and the role of spokesperson are immediately put into practice through individual and group practical exercises.
- How do I prepare for an interview?
- Is my message getting across to the journalist?
- How can I be educational and expert at the same time?
- Are there any tips to reduce the stress level of the spokesperson?
These are just some of the questions to which we provide personalised answers in our mediatraining courses.
For training in real-life conditions, as part of crisis simulation exercises or mediatraining, our facilities, located in the 7th arrondissement of Paris, include :
- professional cameras,
- lighting kits,
- TV mixer,
- mixing desk
- and audio and video monitors.
It perfectly recreates the atmosphere and organisation of a real TV studio.
A crisis simulation exercise that recreates a fictitious environment...
A fictitious environment, in other words?
What's at stake?
The time-lag allows us to discover how a crisis unit works, the different roles, the need for coordination, the usefulness of situation reports, by immersing ourselves in a world that is different from everyday life.
What are its uses?
This will enable you to practise dealing with industrial action, an attack, a natural disaster, a TIAC, etc.
