Tabletop Exercises for Meeting & Event Planners
Conduct It Yourself™ Tabletop Exercises are highly interactive tabletop exercises designed for you to conduct. Scenarios put your participants in the throes of real-life disaster situations, as they unfold. Participants will make the critical decisions - and deal with the consequences of those decisions!
Conduct It Yourself™ Tabletop Exercises include an exercise overview, how-to instructions, forms, script and a ready to run PowerPoint slide show with all of the incidents, scenarios, and guidelines for post-exercise debriefing and discussion.
