The past year of pandemic, social unrest and a divisive election – provided a crash course in crisis management for CEOs. In this week’s DeviceTalks Weekly Podcast, Kevin Lobo, the CEO of Stryker, explains how he led his company through this difficult year.
His recipe for success is long, but it includes priorities, communication and listening.
Lobo also is serving his final year as chairman of AdvaMed. He shares how that experience gave him an even better appreciation of the medtech industry, which he says got treated unfairly at times but still came through with high grades.
Joining us for the first time as a co-host is Nancy Crotti, managing editor of Medical Design and Outsourcing. She’ll talk about the upcoming leadership issue.
Meanwhile, Sean Whooley, assistant editor of MassDevice, will share the five big news items of the week aka #NewmarkersNewsmakers. This week’s news comes from Quest, Pfizer, Boston Scientific and Medtronic.
And we’ll learn which co-host had a steak cooked for them by a future president of the United States.
