International SOS and ACTE Webinar to Provide Travel Directors With Tools and Knowledge on Medical and Security Evacuations

March 19, 2014 Association No Comments Email Email

A panel of experts within the corporate travel industry will share tripwires and best practices for not only planning for emergency evacuations, but for avoiding them through proactive decisions and policies. 

Evacuate Me! Eight Tripwires to Avoid is a complimentary, educational webinar co-hosted by International SOS and the Association of Corporate Travel Executives (ACTE). The session is intended for travel directors and managers for global organizations, as well as professionals who manage or are responsible for employees overseas, including those in the areas of travel, human resources, security, medical, business continuity, risk management and legal.

The webinar will be hosted by the following experts in the corporate travel industry:

– Robert L. Quigley, MD, D.Phil, Professor of Surgery, Regional Medical Director, Americas, International SOS
– Pablo Weisz, Regional Security Manager, Americas, International SOS and Control Risks
– Greeley Koch, Executive Director, ACTE

It’s somewhat inevitable that today’s corporate travel managers will eventually face some type of medical or security crisis or evacuation with one of their international business travelers. Greeley Koch, Executive Director, ACTE, highlighted the webinar’s goal to educate travel directors and managers and arm them with best practices when it comes to planning a corporate travel program for employees. He said of the webinar, “Employee safety overseas should be the main priority for a travel director/manager, and is paramount to a successful corporate travel program. This webinar will encourage and assist directors and managers to strengthen their travel programs and have the peace of mind that their employees are operating in a safe environment. Should an unfortunate or dangerous situation arise, they will have the tools and knowledge in place to either prevent or deal with the situation successfully.”

ACTE and International SOS have partnered to host Evacuate Me! Eight Tripwires to Avoid, because they believe it is just a matter of time before safety or evacuation tactics will be needed in some form or another. The questions travel directors and managers need to ask are; are they prepared to manage a potential crisis? What can be done today so they are ready? And, most importantly, what can be done to prevent an evacuation or other crisis from happening in the first place? Evacuate Me! Eight Tripwires to Avoid, will address these questions and more, and explore why travel plays such a pivotal role in helping organizations fulfill their Duty of Care.

Evacuate Me! Eight Tripwires to Avoid will be hosted Wednesday, March 19th, 2014 at 1 -2 p.m. EST. Follow this link to register to attend this webinar.
