The number of participants and the line taken in the speeches during the Blue March will dictate whether this grassroots movement will fully or partially score their goal, or be totally off base. Richard Thibault, president of RTCOMM, a firm that specializes in crisis management, doesn’t give the total number of participants too much importance. “This has an immediate impact on the event,” he says. “But it doesn’t necessarily reflect the opinion of the population on the proposed amphitheatre. We know that a lot of people who are categorically in favour of the project and want the NHL to come back, but who will stay home. The views of these non-participants still carry weight.”
RTCOMM’s support at strategic times during the preparation, hosting, and followup of this international event played a key role in its success.

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.

Our business relations with RTCOMM have been extremely positive over the past several years. Whether in terms of strategic positioning, training or consulting, their services have always met our expectations. We have built special ties with RTCOMM that go well beyond mere client relations; they have taken the time to really get to know 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.

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.
