Evan Bloom, management supervisor in the Public Relations Group at Eric Mower + Associates, is a guest speaker at the Association of Contingency Planners’ (ACP) NYC Metro Chapter meeting on Thursday, May 17.
Bloom will talk about why companies should have contingency plans for global events that could have impact at a local level. He’ll discuss the risks posed by secondary crises that result out of the primary crisis—what he calls the “curse of secondary risks.” His presentation will focus on the importance of crisis planning, management and communications.

He has consulted to B2B companies specializing in business continuity, enterprise risk management, IT security, office automation, telecommunications and business software.

Bloom has worked on campaigns for some of the world’s largest brands, and has multi-national and multi-cultural experience, having worked in the United States, South Africa and Kenya.
