The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic is causing untold global human suffering while leaving an indelible impact on business sectors. The unprecedented strain on businesses, has forced many to close, downsize or rethink current and future sustainability. Many are in the process of reengineering their business models and strategies; but are leaders doing enough?
After 18 months, what insights have global business leaders gained? How do leaders protect their employees and their bottom lines through the crisis but also move from surviving to thriving when economies will still be reeling?
The four strategic areas most business leaders are focusing on – recovering revenue, rebuilding operations, rethinking the organisation and accelerating the adoption of digital solutions. However, underpinning the success of any strategy is culture. In this panel session, we seek to share our insights into how leaders are adapting their organisational cultures to not only steer their organisations through the crisis but also actively adapt it to prepare for the ‘next normal’. We look to engage with you on:
