What Leaders Can Do in the Middle of a Corporate Crisis

For large organizations, such a crisis is likely to strike more than once and as often as every five years on average. That means that leaders of any company, especially the large ones, should expect to face a crisis at least once while holding their position, and that includes members of the board of directors. Having a plan to face this possibility is imperative. Osler, Hoskin... Read More >

Sirius Bets Big on Pandora

First, they merged with their competition, XM Radio, and now Sirius is going after streaming media provider Pandora. However, early reports that Sirius XM would be taking over Pandora turned out to be little more than rumors. It seems Sirius IS making a major investment in Pandora, though, buying about $480 million in preferred shares, equal to about a 16 percent stake in the company. Pandora’s other investors were happy with this news, as stocks went up about 6 percent when the investment was announced. The deal should be an interesting one for both parties involved.

When Salma Hayek filmed her new movie “Beatriz at Dinner,” she probably wasn’t expecting a firestorm of political reaction … but that’s not to say the actress is backing down from the pressure. The movie follows a Mexican healer, played by Hayek, who attends a dinner party populated by the rich…and their richer friends. One of those “richer” characters is a real estate developer played by John Lithgow. Many viewers are gleefully making comparisons between Lithgow’s character and President Trump. Meanwhile, some Trump supporters are none too happy with the performance or the portrayal of the character. Now, before we... Read More >
