Alastair Campbell Part Two: How to manage a crisis

For The Love Of Rugby - A podcast by Crowd Network

Sam is joined once again by the writer and political strategist, Alastair Campbell.  Alastair is the co-host of The Rest Is Politics podcast but is perhaps best known from his time as ex-Prime Minister Tony Blair’s spokesman, press secretary and director of communications & strategy when he was in power.  In this episode, we look at managing crises. Alastair talks about embracing the pressure of knowing that some decisions matter more; but we also discuss the flip side. Alastair talks openly and honestly about living with depression and the importance of having a strong support network.  We also talk about the power of clear communication, the importance of having a vision and how he and Tony Blair learnt from Premier League managers.  To get in touch with the show, email [email protected] and for extra content search for ‘Captains with Sam Warburton’ on LinkedIn.  If you are listening on Apple and would like to listen to this episode ad-free, as well as getting access to Crowd's other sports shows, click here: You can also listen ad-free on Amazon music.  Music courtesy of BMG Production Music.  Learn more about your ad choices.
