Governor Andrew Cuomo: American Crisis: Leadership and The Pandemic with Billy Crystal

Last Spring New York became the epicenter of the pandemic and the State emerged as the global “ground zero” for a deadly contagion that threatened the lives and livelihoods of millions.

With the President in denial, fake news flooding the airwaves, infection rates spiking and more people dying every day, the systems and functions necessary to combat the pandemic in New York—and America—did not exist. Governor Cuomo undertook the impossible and with his leadership he unified people to rise to the challenge, was relentless in his pursuit of scientific facts and data and quelled fear while implementing an extraordinary plan for flattening the curve of infection in his state. Despite roadblocks presented by a president incapable of leadership and addicted to transactional politics and with his team working day and night who followed the Governor’s leadership to address the threat, his actions made him the standard-bearer of the organized response the country desperately needed.

What was the decision-making that shaped his policy?

What leadership lessons did he learn and is still learning from this crisis?

What’s the game plan for what we as individuals—and as a nation—need to do to protect ourselves against this disaster and those to come?

Join us, Governor Andrew Cuomo in conversation about leadership and the pandemic past, present and future.

Q&A follows the event.
