PwC talk @TEDxBristol: Crisis is inevitable, failure doesn't have to be

Paul Roberston, crisis leadership director at PwC,  was recently invited to speak at a Tedx event on Crisis management, where he shared his key thoughts in relation to crisis leadership.

Crisis leadership is a boardroom issue for many businesses.  We know many boards are already building crisis plans into their business models.  We work with many clients to help them ensure they have the structures and capabilities in place should the worst happen. 

A couple of things to think about: 

  • Building capability: have you got effective structures, processes, people, skills and tools to manage crises effectively?
  • Building confidence: have you ‘tested’ your crisis management leadership plan in realistic simulations?   
  • Ensuring compliance: Is your business compliant with legal and regulatory requirements?

If you'd like to talk more about Crisis Leadership, please contact Charley Newnham.
