Leadership during Covid–19

Leadership during Covid–19

Queen’s University Belfast and the independent public policy think tank Pivotal have together launched a series of podcasts on the impact of Covid–19 on key aspects of life in Northern Ireland.

Hosted by Ann Watt, Director of Pivotal, each episode sees experts from Queen’s, Ulster University, and the Pivotal network, come together to look at areas such as the economy, leadership, and the education sector during, and after, the pandemic.
In this second episode, the panel discusses leadership during the Covid-19 pandemic. The speakers are Professor Ian Greer, Vice-Chancellor of Queen’s University Belfast; Dr Joanne Murphy from Queen’s Management School; and Dr Muiris MacCarthaigh from the School of History, Anthropology, Philosophy and Politics.


Leaders across the world in different sectors have faced huge challenges during Covid-19, whether in healthcare, government, business or international organisations. What has the Covid crisis taught us about leadership? What has good leadership looked like during Covid? What are the challenges still ahead for leaders?

The third episode in this series will explore how Covid has affected education in Northern Ireland. The first episode available here looked at the impact of Covid on the Northern Ireland economy.
