Our final webinar, “What Does Crisis Management Look Like for Different Businesses?”, was held on August 6 moderated by Ms. Helen Chen, Communication and Development Committee Member of BXAI, and featuring panelists Mr. Chan Wai, graphic recorder; Ms. Laura Cozijnsen, founder of Lighthouse Consultant Limited; and Ms. Aurea Yung, Head of Operations at Foodlink Foundation.
Discussing the challenges brought about by the global crisis from different perspectives, our panelists shared openly about how the pandemic prompted them to rethink and modify their business practices, look for new opportunities, and proactively prepare for future challenges in the post-COVID world. Instead of living with a mindset that things will go back to normal, we were encouraged to reorient our viewpoint while maintaining a positive outlook informed by agility, adaptability, and resilience.
