How to Deal with Distress at Board Level


Organisations have been tested like never before throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Crisis Management is often a key priority on the Board agenda and the last 9 months has seen Boards being pushed to their very limit in handling this invisible enemy that has brought about very visible challenges.

But dealing with distress as a Board is not something new and now, more than ever, is it so important to take stock of and consider the factors that lead to distress. What are the key indicators that you need to be aware of? How can you mitigate the short & long-term effects? What are individual roles within the board that knit together to respond effectively to crisis?

In this session we will hear from experienced Chairman & turn-around specialist, Alan Lovell, who will share his experiences of managing distress at board level, the factors that lead to distress and lessons learned on how the board must sufficiently react, adapt and interact throughout distressing scenarios.
