Welcome to episode #048 of The Crisis Intelligence Podcast, with Garth Rowan and Melissa Agnes.
I recently had the great honor and privilege of giving a TEDx Talk in the City of LA. The topic of my TEDx talk is “The Secret to Successful Crisis Management in the 21st Century”.
In this week’s episode of The Crisis Intelligence Podcast, I did something a little different from what I usually do. My goal was to bring the message of my talk to you, and to share this critical secret with you. In order to do this, my good friend and colleague, Garth Rowan and I decided to switch roles, where Garth interviewed me about my talk. So, by tuning in to this week’s podcast, you’ll hear an audio version of my 18 minute TEDx Talk followed by Garth’s interview, where we discuss the process I took to create and deliver my speech, and what it really means to adapt a proactive mindset into the very culture of your organization, in the name of successful crisis management and preparedness.
It was a lot of fun to take on the role of the interviewee on TCIP for once, and I hope you have as much fun listening, as I had chatting with Garth!
This episode of The Crisis Intelligence Podcast discusses:
- My TEDx Talk: The Secret to Successful Crisis Management in the 21st Century.
- The process of creating a TEDx talk, including the challenges I encountered, the books I read and more.
- More tangible, hands-on tips and strategies for adapting the right “crisis-intelligent” mindset into the very culture of your organization.
Delivering this TEDx Talk was both an honor and a challenge and I look forward to sharing the details of my experience with you. Enjoy!
