About this event

"When you're managing a small team, a large department, or a Fortune 500 company, the one thing -- the only thing -- you can truly count on is that things will go wrong.  And when that happens, you're in the spotlight.  You have to make it right.  You have to get things running again."

As the person in charge of the 2013 Super Bowl, Frank Supovitz was the one all heads turned to when the stadium lights suddenly shut off.  What could have been a full-on media disaster turned out to be only a blip in sports history -- only because Frank and his team handled the situation using the methods that will be discussed during this interview.

Frank is a prolific event producer, having served as the Senior Vice President of Events for the NFL from 2005 - 2014, an honor that only 4 people have held in the more than 50-year history of the Super Bowl.  Frank's career kicked-off at the world-famous Radio City Music Hall, and has spanned across the NHL, MLB, and the Indianapolis 500.  Frank founded Fast Traffic Events & Entertainment in 2014, and serves as a consultant and executive producer to some of the most high-profile events in the world.

In this interview, we will dive into the topic of crisis planning and management with Frank's book, What to Do When Things Go Wrong. 

This event will feature a Q&A, so you won't want to miss it live!
