Webinar II - Mark Esposito - Build Resilience and Strategy during and after the Crisis
More

Crises, as painful as they are, are also wonderful opportunities to reflect on current business models and on how the future will be.

The use of scenarios and foresight have been equally valuable tools to peek into the future and aspire to building the new architecture for whatever post traumatic growth we will have to go through.

This masterclass will allow participants to be exposed to some examples of resilience and how innovation and need create compelling new narratives, aimed at the creation of new value. Join if you are interested in exploring the mindset of resilient organizations and how to use instruments to map your journey through and out of the crisis.

Webinar III - Terence Tse - Thriving in the Instant Economic Crisis
More

The deepest recession since the financial crisis of 2008 arrived at our doorstep suddenly.

All levels of our lives from governments to companies to individuals will see a very different new economic normal. It is therefore vital to start thinking about the economic and financial impact that we will have to face.

In this webinar, we will look at various consequences from GDP management to people fighting for toilet paper, from business challenges to income inequality, and along the way highlight some of the threats that we must likely deal with as well as new opportunities that we may be able to capture.

Webinar IV - Alessandro Lanteri - Decision Making in Times of Crisis
More

The business ecosystem has become increasingly turbulent and somewhat frightening to navigate.

Not only are things changing faster than ever before, but they are changing in more dramatic ways, and it’s difficult to discern where the next change is coming from. The world is increasingly VUCA, which is an acronym for: Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous.

How do you prepare for a change that is unpredictable and out of your control?

Being robust is not enough. A system is only as robust as the disruption we can predict. If you can predict certain situations will occur, then it is possible to protect yourself against those disruptions. But in a VUCA world, change is unpredictable.
