About this event

During the past few months, entrepreneurs around the world have been challenged like no other time. Startup Grind Calgary is therefore proud to host a live virtual event with one of the leading crisis communications experts who will share his experiences and lessons learned during this one-time global event. The interview will be broadcast live from Calgary, Alberta and Bogotá, Colombia.

Miguel Silva is the founder of Galileo 6, a strategic communications, crisis and political communications firm. In the 1990s he was the chief of staff to the President of Colombia when Pablo Escobar’s reign of violence was finally stopped. Since then he had various other senior positions including being the Editor in Chief of Rolling Stones magazine in Latin America, founding Gatopardo (a monthly news magazine) and then founding two successful communication firms.

Mr. Silva has led an extraordinary personal and professional life. An international recognized expert in Latin American politics, his advice on building relationships and dealing with crisis is sought after by leaders across the world.
