Eleven Canterbury Experts Step Up to Offer Assistance During the Covid-19 Pandemic

May 14, 2020

Over the past several weeks, as we continue to adjust and recalibrate our lives, I have had many conversations
with executives from the Eleven Canterbury network about how the pandemic is affecting them personally,
and the economic impact it is having on businesses around the world. We’ve also spent a great deal of time
talking about what business and work will look like as a result of changes brought about by the impact of the
pandemic, both near term and into the future. Many agree that we have the potential to come out of this
stronger, and more creative than ever.

Many companies have the agility, infrastructure, and leadership in place that has allowed them to successfully
realign business models to meet the demands of this rapidly changing world. One such company, a California-
based fuel cell manufacturer, retooled part of their factory to repair shipments of broken ventilators from the
federal stockpile. Calling on the expertise of the company’s engineers, with an attitude of ‘anything is possible’
that came from the top, the factory was up and running in a matter of days, and the repaired ventilators were
delivered to hospitals.

With strong leadership, vision, and a willingness to embrace change, there is an opportunity for most
companies to weather this particular storm, and for that matter any storm, successfully. For many, however,
figuring out how to take the first step towards change, while working to keep the business afloat, is a daunting
task. That’s where the experienced executive leaders in our network can step in to help. Many were at the
helm of major global companies during other times of crisis, including the devastating impact of 9/11, and the
market crash of 2008, successfully tackling directional changes and averting a collapse.

In response to today’s crisis, executive experts in the Eleven Canterbury network want to help, and believe
they can. Through one-on-one and team consulting sessions, they will offer sage, external, and impartial
advice, suggesting changes in direction and adjustments, even if temporary, that will help companies weather
this storm. To further support and partner with these companies as they transition, fees typically associated
with consulting sessions, for a limited time, will be waived. 

Eleven Canterbury’s executives have served as industry leaders in a wide range of areas including financial
services, technology, retail, media and telecom, energy, pharmaceuticals, and healthcare. Their experience,
hard-gained throughout long and successful careers, has given them unique knowledge and a high level of
expertise that they offer as a way to give back to and support the business communities they are so
passionate about.
