Business in Asia-Pacific: Impact and Opportunities
Where to focus and thrive in the next 12 to 18 months?
The COVID19 pandemic is a watershed moment, but as we know every crisis brings opportunities. In this session, we will discuss how and which industries will be impacted, how businesses will evolve, our role of leveraging different skills and technology in helping with recovery, and finally, how organisations will re-imagine the workforce and skills required.
This will be a C-suite panel discussing the challenges and opportunities of working in a limited capacity environment, and how the paradoxical phenomena of a measured and yet an over-the-top bold approach, can be applied in the context of a new work environment.
This discussion will uncover:
- What are the most important aspects that SMEs and solopreneurs should have as a core focus in the next 12-18 months to operate, not just to survive, but thrive in a global environment?
- What would be the advice for our community of speakers, trainers and consultants looking to stay relevant in a now new business environment?
