Grant hosts a podcast called Crisis Talks, inviting crisis leaders to share their stories of leadership and resilience in the face of adversity. Interviewees include Matt Gill, the former Mine Manager of Beaconsfield Mine; Earl Eddings, the Chairman of Cricket Australia; Tim Walmsley from BenchOn; New South Wales Senator Jim Molan; Inspector General for Emergency Management in Victoria, Tony Pearce, and the most recent episode features the Director of Emergency Management for Ambulance Victoria - Justin Dunlop.

“Having worked on major crisis events such as the Sundance Aircrash and more recently through two Global Cyber Attacks, I’ve witnessed first-hand some amazing leaders working under extreme adversity. Despite minimal formal crisis management training, these leaders use their values, their technical competence, and their understanding of their industries to work their way through extremely complex crises. Crisis Talks is an opportunity to share their stories so we may all learn from their experiences.”
