COVID19 Pivot Live Session – 4 Speakers Panel – 7 Mins Each
How COVID-19 put us back in the box
And forced us to think in new ways about problem solving, unlearning and relearning
Panellists: Mario Castagnetta, Janet Yung, Caleb Low and Boon Seong
In 2020, we have all been forced to pivot for survival and success. We’ve faced many unknowns and self-doubt has been our lingering company. We’ve experienced a nearly instantaneous economic slowdown, which was triggered by the pandemic shutdown, and it’s wreaked havoc on businesses, large and small.
The recipe for survival requires a thorough rethink and transformation of all we have done in the past, or we risk falling further behind or potentially, going out of business full-stop. But the reality of how entrepreneurs are dealing with the crisis and preparing for the recovery tells a different story. It’s a story of pivoting business models more conducive to short-term survival, along with long-term resilience, planning and growth.
This panel discussion will throw the light on:
- How the COVID19 crisis has forced business owners to rethink everything, from management to business structure and revenue models
- How pivoting taught crucial key lessons in leveraging your community and capabilities, moving quickly and maximizing teamwork, partnerships, as well as collaborating effectively
- The transformation of how businesses run during COVID times and how leaders must lead
