Be Smart Like a Virus

Viruses, like COVID-19 or Ebola are smart little suckers. Every year we humans are getting a slightly different vaccine for the anticipated seasonal flu virus, which is based in large part on previous flu versions. Viruses adaptable and resilient. Considering the role of flu viruses in history, it almost feels like they’re always looking ahead.

Whack-A-Mole is a lousy crisis strategy

I like smacking arcade vermin as much as the next person. Whack-a-mole is alternatively satisfying and frustrating. But the frustration generally lasts longer than the satisfaction.

What people are saying

For over twenty years, I have had the pleasure of working closely with Morgan at DART, the regional transportation provider for north Texas. The issues we dealt with changed daily and there was always the potential for a lunch meeting to be changed due to an accident, police action, or who-knows-what. Morgan is masterful in dealing with the various media platforms in a highly competitive media market and is very well known (and respected) to many. If I found myself in a mess with media closing in on me, I would certainly want him in my corner.
Michael Miles
Vice President, Government Relations
Morgan has an incredibly collaborative approach to his role as the individual charged with being the chief public information officer and “the voice of the organization”. Successful public relations requires big picture thinking coupled with an eye for the details. He has an incomparable ability to elicit, digest and communicate often complex technical and/or political issues from his colleagues. These characteristics, coupled with his consummate overall business and political acumen, describes Morgan to a tee. As an executive colleague, I found Morgan to be a key strategist at the leadership table. And, his inherent ability to coach and counsel is unparalleled.

Vice President, Client Services at Lone Star Transit Asset Management LLC
Morgan's list of skills and experience is long, but perhaps the most important is his ability to see the path. Communicators talk a lot about “cutting through the clutter”; Morgan brings this to an art form--his ability to assess a situation, get down to the essentials, identify the best possible outcome, and devise a strategy and the tactics to get there is truly amazing. He is not afraid to say what needs to be said, moderated with empathy, grace, and often, humor. He is a collaborative leader, an expert practitioner, and a trusted advisor to his colleagues and industry peers.
