About the Webinar
Earlier this year we offered advice in a white paper about how to respond to the COVID crisis in the short-term and how to prepare for what would be needed next to achieve long-term success. Now, months later, there is hope for a vaccine, but no clear answer on when the world will return to normal, whatever the new normal might be.
In this webinar, we reprise the advice to take care of your people, your stakeholders, and the future, while addressing what’s changed. While we’re still in the midst of the storm, it’s clear that digital communication will be a larger part of our businesses and our lives, resilience will be required to achieve long-term success, organizations will need to evolve their culture to align with the effects the pandemic has had on their people and customers, and deep change for many will no longer be a choice but an imperative.
Finally, on an optimistic note, we urge you to begin thinking now about how you will deal with the pent-up demand for your product and services in a post-COVID world. The worst may not be over, but there will be a bright future for those who survive and position themselves to bounce back.
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
- How companies are experimenting with taking digital transformation farther than they ever imagined;
- Our latest thinking on how to build the resilience you need as a leader, and in your organization, to get through what still lies ahead;
- What’s required for a company to fully recover from a serious downturn; and
- How to start thinking about your priorities for the next 6 months, since what you do now will be critical for your long-term success
