“What to Do When Things Go Wrong: A Five-Step Guide to Planning for and Surviving the Inevitable – and Coming Out Ahead” is a new book by award-winning event producer Frank Supovitz, the man who has been behind-the-scenes at major events like the Super Bowl, the Stanley Cup, and the Indy 500.

In What to Do When Things Go Wrong, Supovitz guides you through the process of making sure you handle inevitable problems as if it’s something you do day in and day out. What you do when crisis hits is the only thing matters—and this proven guide delivers everything you need to take positive action with confidence, skill, and professionalism.

“We learn more from the things that go wrong than things that go right,” said Supovitz, CEO of Fast Traffic, an event management and consulting firm based in New York. “But, it’s a whole lot better to learn from the things that went wrong for someone else!”

Whether you’re revealing a new strategy to your team, presenting last year’s numbers to the C-suite, or opening your own business, What to Do When Things Go Wrong helps you think through and prepare for all potential problems. You’ll learn why things go wrong, how to best go about preventing crisis, and how to fix them when they happen anyway.

Supovitz, who served more than 20 years combined as the head of events for the National Hockey League and National Football League, shares best practices for crisis management drawn from memorable stories and case studies based on his own challenges, as well as those faced by others in a variety of businesses and situations. Among the most recognizable and revealing stories explored in the book was his management of the team responsible for recovery during the Super Bowl blackout.

What to Do When Things Go Wrong is available in hardcover on Amazon, at bookstores in the U.S., and on Kindle and other e-book platforms. Learn more.
