Resource Round Up - Part 4 of 5

Item 4: article by Catherine Levin – Getting resilience to the top of the strategic leader’s agenda In this article Catherine interviews John Barradell, CEO of the City of London Corporation, and Deputy Chair of the London Resilience Forum, who reflects on his experience after Grenfell to give a striking reminder that every senior leader is ultimately responsible for resilience. I would put it at the top of your strategic leaders in trays. Because as the article points out, a failure to prioritise risk and resilience can be catastrophic for individuals and organisations. This article is all the more timely and pertinent when we consider the ongoing findings of the Manchester Arena Enquiry. Which links nicely to a good online read by Dan Slee. Which considers the role of reputational management in public sector communications and why a pivot is needed, based on learning insights from recent reports and previous disasters such as Hillsborough.
