A faster and more networked world poses great challenges for companies, technology and economic decisions.
After many years of working as a Risk Manager, the Verismo Seminar Risk Management has not only introduced me to new, theoretical facets of Risk Management but also taught me many and valuable insights from recent practice.
The very practice-oriented tutors, in particular Dr. Klaus Bockslaff, and the participants from the most diverse industries and positions have produced a perfect mix of theory and practice. Refreshing discussions on a sound basis complete the picture.
A valuable experience, paired with topicality, which I can already use profitably in my daily work.

The Verismo seminar ‘Advanced Crisis Management’ is practice-oriented and offers people who already have previous knowledge of Crisis Management very good opportunities to expand their knowledge and skills. The presentations on various aspects of Crisis Management are of high quality and reflect the extensive professional experience of the speakers. Using examples of real-life situations, theoretical aspects are clearly conveyed and can be directly transferred by the seminar participants to their specific professional environment. The practical exercise convinces through a sophisticated setting and shows the participants directly and vividly how they react in a challenging situation under time pressure within a team and where there is still need for development. Overall, the seminar offers a very good combination of theory and practical exercises with a high knowledge content.
What I found particularly good about the seminars was that during the seminars there was always enough room to exchange ideas with the other participants. The trainers/lecturers also convey very clearly and ensure that learning is fun enough.

Structured Risk Management is the essential basis of a modern Corporate Security Organization. I was impressed by the seminar in many respects, on the one hand by the excellent speakers, who not only focused on ISO 31000, but on the whole range of all relevant standards and regulations, such as ONR 49000, COSO 2, MaRisk, AS/NZS 4260, which were included. The adoption of the Risk Management Standards to the needs of corporate security was optimal and practical.
Besides the excellent professional competence of all speakers, I particularly appreciated working in a small group and learning in a family environment.

One of my core tasks is the continuous development of the in-house Crisis Management as well as the professional and socially competent establishment and expansion of the crisis team including the situation centre.
I can unreservedly recommend the Crisis Management seminars of Verismo, because they clearly stand out from other providers because Verismo puts the main focus on the methodology of the crisis management team work. You quickly gain an overview of the basics of Crisis Management and then deepen your knowledge in detail in the leadership cycle to ensure effective and goal-oriented work in the crisis team. The seminar series is enriched by the practical experience of the speakers and participants as well as a very pleasant and almost familiar learning environment. I was particularly impressed by the practical and software-supported training, which allows enough space for questions and discussions on a small scale. This is clearly where most of the knowledge gained is to be found, which in my opinion can be transferred very well to the real environment. Of course, the fun is not neglected and confirms that Crisis Management can also be fun, as long as you know how to manage a crisis and identify with it. “Crisis team work is also fantasy work” Thank you very much!
