Introducing Allan Bonner:
I work in government up to 30 days a year in Ottawa and have a state of the art training session in Toronto. I've worked for most federal and provincial ministries and about 30% of the Financial Post 500 companies, including banking, insurance, oil, chemicals and mining. My trainers spent decades in big city dailies, as assignment editors, legislative reporters and program hosts. You'll remember us from Metro Morning, As It Happens, The National News, Morningside, Radio Noon, 20/20 news and perhaps even the RKO radio networks in the US. We're just the kind of journalists you need to know how to reach. Now, we work for you. Fifty per cent of our business is in crisis management. We've recently handled mergers and acquisitions, allegations of sexual and child abuse, coroner's inquests, theft, public inquiries and allegations of same-sex sexual harassment. Our courses get you going on a proper crisis management plan. Our negotiation and dispute resolution course is based on The Harvard Method and my curriculum at Osgoode Hall Law School.
I'm running a comprehensive cross-Canada tour, beginning in April. The cost is reduced
because of underwriting by a national association. Those who pre-register will receive $100 in books, CDs and DVDs to enhance the learning experience. Please look at the schedule and curriculum. Consult my video and audio clips on my blog on
