Today, Alexander Jutkowitz, the Penta Board Chair, and Beth Comstock, Board Member at Penta, and the former Vice Chair of General Electric, join Penta President Matt McDonald on the inaugural episode of What’s At Stake: A Penta Podcast. On the show, the group talks about the increasing challenges businesses, especially at the leadership level, are facing in solving the challenges presented by, and managing the risk of, an increasingly engaged group of stakeholders. Additionally, they discuss how businesses that are thinking about engaging their stakeholders on a regular basis are the ones best prepared to navigate unexpected crises.
Matt, Beth, and Alexander explain how this opportunity in the marketplace spurred the idea for Penta.
