Many businesses will not survive the shock of the pandemic. Amir Orad draws on his experience leading through past global crises to help your organisation adapt and thrive.
The human tragedy of COVID-19 is unprecedented in our lifetimes. So, too, is the economic impact, and its consequences for global wellbeing. Many businesses will not survive.
But amid the pain, there will be long term positive change around innovation, technology, and our way of life. In this conversation with futurist Sinead Bovell, business leader Amir Orad will explore the multifaceted nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, and its ripple effects through people, culture, geopolitics and the economy.
The pandemic will be an equalizer, where people living in rural areas will stop being location disadvantaged when it comes to work, health and education. It will cut down the cost of services, introduce efficiencies to the economy, improve services to under-served areas, allow people to have more time with their loved ones, and much more. It will accelerate long needed trends from remote health to distant learning and back to local community values.
So what is this mitigating factor in this crisis that could make the difference between success and failure?
In times of crisis, like today, companies must understand what’s happening to their business, predict scenarios, and make hard decisions about how to survive and flourish. You can’t navigate a crisis like this one, or build a global business anytime just relying on your gut feeling. You need data.
While the phrase “data is the new oil” may sound cliche, it still holds true. Crude oil in and of itself is not valuable – it has to be refined. The very same holds true for data. Every company is sitting on a valuable asset, but they have to know how to refine it. That’s what analytics does.
And those who will invest in refining their data, will be the ones whose future is brightest. Find out how in this unmissable livestream.
This event takes place at 6:30pm British Summer Time.
