Prepare. Respond. Emerge Stronger.

We are PwC’s Global Crisis Center

Welcome to the crisis era. Are you ready? 

Sixty-five percent of the CEOs said they’d experienced at least one crisis in the past three years. And, more than 30% of CEOs predict they will face more than one crisis in the next three years. It’s no longer a matter of if an unplanned event will hit - it is a matter of when.

But there is a silver lining. According to the responses of CEOs, 39% of them tell us their ability to manage a crisis well has actually contributed positively to revenue growth. To realize the positive value of crisis planning, companies need to give it the same level of importance and support that they would do for more tangible parts of business operations.

Are you prepared? Are you ready? We are.

Unplanned events can arise anywhere at any time. Each incident is different. Some you know about in advance; some you know could happen one day; and others are just impossible to predict.

Our crisis specialists are backed by the power of the global PwC network. We can convene strategists and data analysts. Professionals in fraud, cyber security and investigations.. Communications teams and project managers. So, while you won’t always know what will happen, or how things will play out, you will know you’ve got the right team by your side.

Build resilience before a crisis hits

Prepare to lead your organization in a crisis. We guide you on how to monitor and identify threats. Using proprietary technology, we help you review, assess and improve your strategy to respond, equipping you with the skills to react effectively.

Build confidence and take control

When a crisis hits, business as usual becomes a thing of the past. Decision-making is often paralyzed by fear of making the wrong call. Even though many organizations end up doing the right things, they can still be disjointed and, the big picture can be lost, costing you time, financial capital, and public trust. Our Global Crisis Center can help you with a variety of solutions and insights – so you can understand and address the crisis, build confidence with your stakeholders, and take control of the situation.

Emerge stronger, sooner, more resilient

The effects of a crisis can be long-lasting. We’ll support you as you recover, helping you to stabilize your operations and adapt to a new ‘business as usual’. So, your recovery becomes an opportunity for growth. We help you create and implement new business strategies, and provide technical and functional expertise as well as short and long-term project management support. Beyond that, our ‘recover’ solutions will help you identify and capitalize on the lessons learned, so you’ll have stronger capabilities for crisis management in the future.
