Hello back :)
I really hope you all are well, safe and healthy!
It's been some time I wrote a post. These times are challenging, not only because of the coronavirus, working from home and adapting to a new rythm, but also for event professionals it's the time to pivot.
A lot of event organizers are pivoting from offline events to online ones. However, this is not the only possibility.
In the last three weeks, I have participated 20+ webinars. Hmmm, it feels a lot... After hours of talking, sharing, learning and watching, I have found my new favorite topic!
It's 'Emergency Preparedness'!!! Wow what is this? Are you wondering what do I have to do with emergency planning? As an event organizer and protocol advisor, I am always caring about the participants and VIPs of my events. To make sure their security is ensured, I always go all the extra miles. At least I thought I did... until I took a certification in Emergency Preparedness for Events and Meetings. I realized I was not as prepared as I thought to be. If you are interested about my four take-aways of this certification from MPI, you can watch it here:
After researching further this topic, I realized, as a person, I am not well prepared at home when it came to incidents. I started to work on a document for me, when my partner turned to me and said, this would be so useful for others as well. I run a poll on my social media accounts and around 85-92% of voters were interested getting this tool. So, I think there is some need for it.
That's how we came up with the idea of sharing this document, which serves as a template for households.
The template is based on information I collected, and thought might be useful to have at a centralized place and easy to find. There is nothing scientific about it, just all the practical things in one place and I hope it will be useful for you as well.
This template contains: a free downloadable checklist of useful information to document per household with 1-3 members. I am preparing an extended version for households with more than 3 members. If you would like to get it, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Don't hesitate to send me a message if you have any question, feedback, or you would like to get an editable or a big-family edition.
Stay safe and take care of you and your loved ones! :) 💗
