Judy Smith with Moderator Cheryl Howard, DBA
Women in Corporations
From competition to collaboration - Judy Smith is America's go-to guru for crisis management. The real-life inspiration for the Shonda Rhimes television drama Scandal, she has worked behind the scenes to guide politicians, corporations, and celebrities through some of the highest-profile events of our time, including the impeachment of President Clinton, the Enron Congressional inquiry, and the BP oil spill. In her fascinating and informative dialogue with Simmons Vice President Cheryl Howard, Smith reveals the lessons learned from these public relations disasters—and particularly how collaboration can be used to stop personal and professional crises before they start.
