The recent attacks and rising tensions in the Gulf of Oman have once again thrust shipping into the media and geopolitical spotlight.

From sanctions to armed attacks, commercial vessels are often on the frontlines of global hotspots and such situations present unique communications challenges for shipowners and shipmanagers. Navigate Response has managed the media response for several of the recent Gulf attacks on behalf of its clients.

VDR invites you to join Navigate Response for a crisis communications workshop including a live media response exercise simulating an attack on a vessel. Using Navigate Response’s proprietary media simulation platform – Triton – participants will work in teams to practice engaging effectively with the media and social media during a high-profile incident. For the best experience please bring a laptop or tablet; the simulator can be accessed on a mobile phone, but a larger screen is highly preferable as participants will need to engage and write responses.
