Crisis Consulting: Behind the Scenes During the Iraq War, Nuclear Plant Accidents, and More
Joining us on this episode of “Behind the Bullseye” is Stan Soloway. Stan talks to us about his experiences during a forty-year career as a public affairs consultant, political strategist, and CEO of a trade association. We start the interview by asking Stan about his experience as CEO of the Professional Services Council during the Iraq war. His member companies comprised the core of the private sector support for both the allied military operations and the reconstruction and redevelopment of the country. One of the most controversial parts of that work involved the use of private security. In one case, a dozen people were killed by private security contractors in Tahrir Square.
Behind the Bullseye is a podcast is about navigating challenges and communicating effectively during difficult situations when your organization’s credibility and reputation – even its very future – are on the line. Few of us welcome a trial by fire. But here you can learn from those who have communicated when the stakes are highest. Hear from those who’ve done it the right way, and from those who did it the wrong way. These are practitioners who’ve indeed been behind the bullseye. We trust that their insights, tips, and counsel will help you prepare now for that day we hope we avoid – when you yourself are behind the bullseye.
