Today crisis situations unfold more quickly and increase exponentially. It’s no longer just a matter of staying on the right side of law, but how this plays out in the court of public opinion and whether you can maintain your social licence to operate during a crisis. Our last Brave New Law Topic of 2023 focused on this topic via an interactive workshop with leading General Counsel and in-house lawyers.
Our next webinar features some of the leading General Counsel who participated in that workshop, who will share their thoughts on how you ensure you maintain your social licence to operate during a crisis – and what the key roles the General Counsel and their team play in this. The discussion will be chaired by Dr. Catherine McGregor author and executive coach.
This can be a challenging time for General Counsel and their teams as considerable pressure can be brought to bear on them if the messaging is uncomfortable for those who are leading the business. Additional dimensions include the ethicability and management of unintended consequences of critical decisions, the importance of enabling support systems and addressing the depth and breadth of different stakeholder groups' ideas and viewpoints when handling a crisis.
