Our mandate is to build the crisis leadership capabilities of executive teams to improve outcomes during a crisis. We call this crisis intelligence.

Crisis intelligence is about developing crisis leadership skills and enhancing decision making under pressure. It’s also about embedding robust strategies and supporting tools into an organisation’s culture. Crisis intelligence is an integrated process that considers people, systems and infrastructure to provide an holistic crisis management and response capability. Unfortunately, Corporate Australia today is under prepared for tomorrow’s crisis.

This lack of crisis readiness is evident across most sectors of the economy and undermines the stability of many organisations. It presents significant risk to an entity’s reputation, market share, financial stability and regulatory compliance. Adding to this, crisis management has traditionally been the domain of public relations specialists, addressing communications and media in isolation.  Although integral, these components alone do not provide a sufficient level of crisis readiness.

Building crisis intelligence at the highest levels of an organisation is therefore essential for effective management of a significant incident and providing assurance to internal and external stakeholders alike. Today, stakeholders expect organisations to be prepared for any eventuality; being crisis ready is now a commercial necessity.
