Date:    4 August 2021, Wednesday
Time:    4:00pm - 5:00pm

As Singapore accelerates national efforts on Covid-19 programme, we are not near any end of the pandemic yet. With uncertainty continues to loom behind the big dark clouds, the prolonged downturn has resulted in slower recovery with many businesses taken the heavy toll. Against this backdrop, the trails of impact are significant as situation deteriorates unexpectedly when we presume the coast is clear. While we emerged and transitioned in this evolving new normal coupled with perpetual disruption, it is evidently shown in our adoption of many trends, like digitalisation and globalisation, our capabilities to adapt in a much more time-constrained fashion. Now, are we ready to take on more challenges albeit the existential threat this pandemic will last?

Join us for a 3-part series of getting your business prepared in a post-pandemic world as our panel of speakers share insights on how we can be mentally, strategically and sustainably prepared to reimagine the future together.

These sessions will be moderated by Henry Tan, Group CEO & Chief Innovation Officer, Nexia TS.
