Resilience with Chris Fussell

We were so honoured to have the brilliant Chris Fussell on this episode of our Spark Generation Podcast.

Chris speaks to David Touhey about the work of the McChrystal Group and how he works with leaders across the world to build resilient organisations.

Chris served 15 years as a Navy Seal, then served as the Aide-de-Camp to four-star General Stan McChrystal. Bringing his lessons from the battlefield to the boardroom, Chris now helps companies optimize talent, improve performance, and develop leaders.

As we move through a huge period of change at Kentech and prepare ourselves for the future, it was great to delve into Chris’s brain about building a networked organisation based on a team of teams model. As we tackle the question of how we can combine the cohesion, agility, and adaptability of a small team with the capabilities of a big organisation, Chris helped to provide clarity with an insight into the behaviours required to make it work.

On Tuesday 9th February 2021, we announced an agreement to acquire the oil & gas business of SNC-Lavalin’s Resources Division.

This business includes people and assets brought together through their acquisition of the Kentz and other energy services businesses. This transaction marks an exciting, ground-breaking development for Kentech to reinforce our position as a leading integrated energy services provider and introduces us to the renewable / clean power marketplace. We now move forward together with a global network of more than 10,000 professionals united by a commitment of common values and strong partnerships with clients from across the world.

By investing now, we are strategically positioning the company to take advantage of the next cycle of growth.

Our complementary businesses will join forces, creating a stronger offering across the full asset life cycle – from consulting to design and build, commissioning and start-up, through to maintenance, modification and turnaround, as well as decommissioning services.
