Risk in the Time of Corona


We formed the Speak Up Academy as Covid-19 hit and businesses around the world were caught in an uncertain world. We approached risk management expert, Grant Griffiths and asked, what do businesses do now? Especially when it’s so overwhelming?

If you work in the corporate world, you want to make sense of what’s happening and how this will affect your company, your business, your people. How long will we battling COVID19 and how does this affect business in the long run?

In our very first Speak Up Academy webinar, Animah Kosai interviewed Speak Up Advisor, Grant Griffiths who explained how organisations move from Overwhelm to Structure – identifying the risks  companies face from the corona virus, the economic uncertainty, and the steps to address and mitigate them. Our webinar was held on March 19th, 2020 and here’s the recording.

This isn’t a magic bullet, but knowing what’s out there helps calm you, your board, your management, your people.
