25 Business Leaders on Surviving in Troubled Times

Dealing successfully with crisis is an essential part of doing business. In this book, 25 well-known Irish business leaders tell their own stories of how they survived and even thrived during moments of crisis. Alongside the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, other moments of crisis discussed include the 2008 financial crash, the September 11th attacks, and the 2010 ash cloud, along with more personal crises.

Crisis takes readers through the stages of a crisis: the initial reaction or the WTF moment; the leadership or the ‘we got this’ stage is where credibility is determined; the adaptation phase where decisions are made; the support stage, also known as the ‘who ya gonna call’ stage; and, finally, the review stage. Nobody gets everything right all of the time. Indeed in many crises the leader is literally writing the rule book at each stage, hence the value of reading about the contributors’ experiences. Crisis features contributions from:

• Paul Reid – CEO of the HSE

• Professor Niamh Brennan – University

• Anton Savage – Director, Communications College Dublin Clinic and broadcaster

• Kevin Rafter – Chair of the Arts Council

• Dermot Bannon – Architect and presenter of of Ireland RTE’s Room to Improve
