How Not to Run Meeting When You’re in Charge of a Nuclear Power Plant


Indian Point CEO Wayne Leonard seems to have some misguided notions about how to talk about the threat of nuclear disaster. So we would like to offer the following tips: Don’t start your PowerPoint presentation to investors by displaying a quote from The Hangover, “By the way, we’re all gonna die!” Don’t stuff the first five pages with more Hangover references and then scatter them throughout the next 111 pages. Don’t spitball a list of other ways people can die, including bee stings and legal execution. Maybe get someone to fact-check statements like, “No one has died as a result of a nuclear accident.” And when it’s over, don’t have your spokesperson offer this quote as an explanation, “Wayne’s a movie buff.” [NYP]
