Remembering 9/11: Lessons Learned From a World Trade Center Survivor
This week marks the 20th anniversary of September 11. To honor that anniversary, we invited Joe Dittmar, a 9/11 World Trade Center survivor, to share his incredible story of that fateful day. Joe offers lessons learned about situational awareness and crisis management, as well as the importance of communication.
Joe is a founding member of the Naperville 9/11 Memorial Commission and an advocate for the Always Remember Initiative. Over the past 20 years, he has shared his experiences and insights into one of the most significant events in U.S. and world history.
We hope you gain value from hearing firsthand what it feels like to be in the middle of an unprecedented crisis and to navigate a chaotic situation with minimal information.
