Corona Expert Calls
Build, back, better | April 17, 21, 24

April 16, 2020 - April 24, 2020

8:00-8:30 am

The spread of the corona virus also leaves deep scars in the economy. In many industries that were already shaken before the crisis, the downward trend is intensifying, and even companies that were previously well positioned are threatened in their existence by disrupted supply chains and collapsing demand. It is therefore all the more important for companies to do the right thing quickly and consistently now.

Safe reboot

It is not only a matter of surviving the next weeks and months, but also of being prepared for the time after that. It is clear that the protection of health must always come first. However, it is now also necessary to talk about a timely "safe reboot" as a necessary scenario to counteract the corona crisis economically.

In this difficult situation, we would like to give you some impulses on how and through which pragmatic, action-oriented solutions this can work.

3 x 30 minutes with experts

In three early morning telephone conferences, we will let renowned speakers from different areas have their say. There will also be room for your own questions.

All calls will be held in German language.
