Every year, PM and Inconnect organise one or more a risk and crisis management master classes in both Belgium and the Netherlands. Its extensive 4 day programme, worked out in cooperation with several international academic partners, covers the latest developments with respect to risk, crisis and change management/communication. A large number of methodologies, practical applications and cases are discussed in detail. The next edition will be the fourth one.
New edition in 2016
We planned a new edition in Fall 2016.
Contact us early if you are interested.
The overall objective of this master class is to familiarise participants with new insights in this area of expertise. As such, we guarantee they receive an extensive update about the latest developments in the field upon completion of the programme. On the other hand, the master class also aims to examine in more detail, and to expand upon, existing concepts relating to the risk and crisis domain. By applying concepts from related domains, such as psychology or neuroscience, the participant constructs a broader and more grounded vision on the risk and crisis domains.
During the master class, we continuously relate cases and methods to new scientific and practitioners’ insights. The practical application of this new knowledge is discussed in detail by PM and Inconnect’s advisors, guest lecturers, and the participants themselves.
The programme has been set up to ensure that, upon completion, the participants will be able to apply these new insights to improve the level of risk and crisis awareness and crisis resistance within their own organisation.
Note: New updated programme to be announced later.

Highly recommended for crisis communication freaks. Deepening our profession.
During the master class, I realised that my organization has to invest more time and work in risk management as opposed to (going straight to) crisis management.
This morning session makes me feel happy #mcrcm: starting from the experience. #communication #crisiscommunication
When facing the next crisis situation, I’ll steer even more towards fast, active communication by the impacted organisation.
First day of risk-crisis management masterclass. What goes on in our brains during a crisis? Fascinating!
Thank you!!! This was one of the best classes in the field of risk and crisis management I attended over the last year.
I highly recommend the crisis management master class for communication advisors. New insights, food for thought and inspiring experiences.
The things that made this master class really interesting for me are the individual knowledge and experiences of all the participants. Sharing this with each other was a major learning opportunity for me and is certainly an added value of the master class.
Fascinating contribution to the master class by Steven Poelmans! Insights from psychology and neuroscience giving a major insight in our risk-crisis profession.
The main idea that I took away from the master class was to use an academic approach to introduce the risk management spectrum in my organization, and to use that approach for a better risk inventory and planning.
Mike Lauder during the CIP crisis communication master class #mcrcm. “All models are wrong, but some are useful.”
Even the less obvious insights about leadership styles and collaboration with emergency services were discussed. Likewise, the diversity and practical experiences shared by participants were a major added value.
Read a lot of good things about #mcrcm by a.o. @StijnPieters
The master class gave me the last little push to start a PhD program. Have seldom been so deeply inspired in those four days! Thank you all for the little push.
