Lt. Col. Darling shares the principles of crisis leadership and decision making with his audiences with an “edge of your seat” presentation that’ll take you from the moment the attack was realized, to the courageous decisions made to stop it, to the safeguards and policies our country now has in-place in an attempt to prevent it from ever happening again. This presentation is designed to ensure we, as a nation, never forget the events of 9/11/01, and to inspire all leaders to take the necessary steps to protect and safeguard their employees, organizations and their communities.

  • Gain a broader knowledge of Strategic Communications and the perils of too much detail
  • Understand Crisis Preparation and Planning – “All Hands-on Deck”
