Your Presenter

Lucien CantonLucien G. Canton, CEM
Over the years, Canton has emerged as a major thought leader in emergency management, advocating the use of management concepts to professionalize a field that is often mischaracterized as a technical discipline. A frequent speaker at national conferences and guest lecturer at universities both in the United States and abroad, his book, Emergency Management: Concepts and Strategies for Effective Programs, is used as a textbook for both graduate and undergraduate courses. As a consultant, Canton specializes in helping managers lead better in crisis by understanding the human factors often overlooked in crisis planning. He also teaches clients how to adapt to and thrive in new environments. He believes that a consultant’s job is to partner with the client to change the client’s condition for the better.
