Business Management in Humanitarian Crisis

The coronavirus pandemic 2019 (COVID-19) has led to an unprecedented humanitarian crisis that has impacted most, if not all, businesses around the world. The enduring effects of the pandemic that we are currently witnessing suggest that businesses today can no longer adopt a wait-and-see approach, but instead, they must proactively evolve in order to survive and succeed in the new normal. Given that time and tide wait for no one, this webinar endeavors to deliver a collection of practical tips that executives can
apply immediately to navigate their business operations in times of humanitarian crisis. It is hoped that the strategies presented herein this webinar will have an immediate impact for the business community in
terms of remedying the challenges that they are facing and propelling them to emerge as winners from the COVID-19 global humanitarian crisis.
