Online July 16, 2020

Yes, times are tough right now, but as Geoff Colvin so often says,

“Someone’s going to win – why not you?”

Geoff Colvin (senior editor-at-large of Fortune) will share his playbook for coming out of this crisis even stronger. Two of the points he makes in his book, The Upside to This Downturn, is to confront reality faster than the competition and take decisive action.

What kind of action?

Geoff says winning companies…
  • Don’t just accept the new normal – they embrace it
  • Update the business model
  • Don’t just cut costs – they rethink them
  • Make strategic acquisitions
  • Steal great people

GEOFF COLVIN, senior editor-at-large of Fortune, has reported on how top leaders and companies adapt to challenging times for more than four decades. His respected insights – found online, in the magazine, and on the CBS Radio Network – help business leaders seize opportunities that come with a crisis. Geoff is author of the seminal book on the subject, The Upside of the Downturn, which came out in the midst of the Great Recession. He’s written extensively on the topic including his new feature in Fortune (subscription required, sorry) just out last week is called “Coming out of a crisis, the boldest companies win.”
