Today, we take a dive into some lessons from the political and security risk business. My guest is Richard Fenning. Now and executive coach, Richard was the CEO of Control Risks for 14 years, one of the world’s foremost consulting firms in this space. As you might imagine, being the CEO for a firm like this is incredibly interesting. After all, Control Risks helps clients deal with things like kidnappings, terrorist incidents, coups, fraud, corruption, and just about everything in between.

Richard has written a fabulous book about the experience. It’s called What on Earth Can Go Wrong? Tales From the Risk Business. It’s part memoir, part travel book, part business book and contains first-hand, insightful (and sometimes funny) accounts of Richard’s experiences in places like Kenya, Iraq, Colombia, Russia, the USA amongst others. It also contains interesting reflections about decision-making in such places.

We get into that and more in this episode, including:

  • Richard’s reflections on the situation in Afghanistan (this was recorded the day after the fall of Kabul);
  • Decision-making in challenging business environments;
  • The underside of globalisation;
  • The difference between fear and risk;
  • Much more.
