Welcome to the Centre for Crisis & Risk Communications

At the Centre for Crisis & Risk Communications, we are “Passionate about Preparedness.”​ Supported by, and following the work of Dr. Vincent Covello, we can help your organization prepare to speak to the unspeakable.


We offer crisis communication consultation, tools, training and workshops. We also specialize in media relations training which will compliment your crisis planning.


We collaborate with multiple organizations when necessary so that you are completely supported through emergency response & business continuity planning, in addition to leadership & management training.

We help organizations be prepared for the
unthinkable, unimaginable, unpredictable, and the unspeakable.
