“The Perfect Storm” is an original training by Timofey V, an expert in anti-crisis communications.

The perfect storm simulates a scenario in which teams of participants are plunged into a crisis situation. The crisis is rapidly developing; its new stages are driven by economic, political, moral and ethical factors that provoke complex and conflict situations.

The participants’ task is to develop management decisions that adequately meet the short-term and long-term risks of the proposed scenario.

The training was invented in 2019 as a tool for transferring experience in anti-crisis response. Over 4 years, more than 100 training sessions were conducted. The training is a permanent part of the Personnel Reserve program; among the training's clients are top management of Russian regions, the Russian Government, and large industrial holdings.
Problems that “The Perfect Storm” solves:
  • Formation of a strategy for managing risks and changes in the company.
  • Improving the quality of cross-functional interaction.
  • Adaptation and readiness for changes in the company, industry, business, and state.
  • Finding errors and ways to optimize current business processes.
  • Searching for and developing ways to resolve crisis situations.
  • Development of anti-crisis communication skills.
