Silicon Valley's Premier Crisis Conference

In 2018, Greenbrier's inaugural CrisisCon event brought in a wide range of speakers - from Uber to the White House - who entertained attendees with their real-life crisis experiences and offered expert insights on how to prevent, manage, and recover from a crisis. 

What to expect in 2019...

You won't want to miss what we have in store for 2019 CrisisCon. Listen to experts from different industries discuss the application of proven crisis practices, while listening to real stories from the trenches. The conference concludes with an attendee-only networking reception on the bay overlooking Alcatraz and the Golden Gate.
