Brexit to Zika: How to Manage a Crisis

July 18th, 2016

Episode 570 of 643 episodes

We learn how to keep our heads while those around us are losing theirs. From Brexit to Zika to economic meltdown, different parts of the world are feeling the heat in different ways at the moment. So we've summoned a leading expert in crisis management, Peter Power of Visor Consultants and the chairman of the World Conference on Disaster Management, to mop our collectively fevered brow. Those are skills that might be useful in Rio just now as it prepares to host the Olympics amidst a zika epidemic and a new budget calamity, as it's being called. We have a report from there. And Lucy Kellaway of the Financial Times debates the relative merits of walking, cycling and taking public transport to work in a congested city.
