In 1976, he began working for Radio-Canada, and would continue there until his retirement in 2009. Louis Hardy built a solid reputation in the area of sports and outdoor activities as well as in public affairs, major radio reports and as program host of Les héros du samedi, Univers des sports, Adrénaline, Hebdo Sports and Aventure olympique. At ease with both live and taped programs, Louis Hardy is truly dedicated to his profession and to working with the media. It is this passion that he wishes to contribute on the RTCOMM team.
I loved RTCOMM’s course on crisis management. The workshop really alerted me fact that a crisis always happens when you least expect it and disrupts a business. So it’s crucial to be prepared in order to deal with it as calmly as possible. This is what RTCOMM’s crisis management course with a round table simulation showed us.

In response to a policy direction, the Service aérien gouvernemental (SAG) has been developing a continuity of services plan for the past several months. With the help of RTCOMM, this major project has really taken off. Dynamism, professionalism and expertise are the words that best define this crisis management team. Widely recognized in the field, they were able to effectively adapt to governmental needs with uncompromised dedication to a job well done.

Since our relationship began, we have been fortunate to benefit from RTCOMM’s main areas of expertise: strategic positioning, crisis management, and spokesperson training. Though their team has a knack for dealing with the unexpected—which is a valuable asset for a fast-growing company such as ours—we have always felt that nothing unexpected would ever occur because of their ability to keep one step ahead of events.

Sûreté du Québec called on Richard Thibault Communications Inc. to provide distance communication training to its 85 station managers. This service enabled us to train all managers within two weeks—a process that would otherwise have taken months—and all without requiring them to travel. RTCOMM’s services saved us time and money while helping us reach our training goal.

RTCOMM’s support at strategic times during the preparation, hosting, and followup of this international event played a key role in its success.
