Simone Douglas - "#SeriouslySocial"
The Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is now impacting our personal and professional lives. Many are trying to navigate through their unfolding business complexities related to people, supply-chain, financial health, customer engagement and risk management.
We are currently going through one of the most significant historical changes ever experienced in the last 100 years.
Old businesses will change and new businesses will emerge. We are already seeing a shift in services our clients are adopting as a response to this pandemic. Essential services in relation to healthcare, energy and natural resources, water, and emergency services will continue to be in demand, although the business models for these industries may change.
We need to be vigilant and cautious about the further impact of the spread of the virus, and resilient to create new ways of living and working. We need to gain inspiration on how two of the most populous nations of the world; India and China are managing the situation. The collective wealth of western nations will help repurpose spending and improve healthcare.
New ways of living and working will emerge as soon as fear subsides, so let’s start now, by discussing ways to reimagine and reinvent our lives, our organisations and our society.
IBGR is committed to your success and our programming is designed to give you the tools and resources as well as the one percenters you might be missing that are the difference between feeling like you are in the pilots seat or preparing for a crash landing.
Show Objectives - The Why
COVID-19 has been a catalyst for accelerated change – some of it clear to see already, some less so. Companies should begin planning now for low-probability but high-impact trends and scenarios by using a future-back approach.
Looking far ahead after a period of unprecedented change can be challenging, but it’s essential for any good business or organisation, anticipating a long-term future in a post-COVID world to understand the possibilities that lie beyond. The future of the working world may look very different in the aftermath of the crisis, or it may look similar to what many have been anticipating – just a lot closer.
This time of disruption is also a time of opportunity. By looking ahead through a new, transformative lens, your business can reframe its future
