About the course
A response like no other. The sudden onset of COVID-19 was a test of organisational preparedness, resilient leadership and crisis management on a global scale. Unfortunately, this might not be the only unprecedented test businesses can expect. With growing risks stemming from climate change to migration, the business community must continue to build its resilience and reserves, and be ready to respond to the dangers posed by more complex tests in the coming years. As we engage in a prolonged and uncertain recovery phase, what can businesses and other organisations learn from the current pandemic and how can they create opportunities to emerge stronger and better prepared for tomorrow?
The Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, in collaboration with the European Chamber of Commerce Singapore (EuroCham) brings you a series of six online masterclasses under a single programme. Providing the analysis and perspectives from practitioners and academics, companies and the wider community can gain insights on how to rise to the occasion, and partner with governments to play a critical role in jump-starting the economy while protecting community health. Senior executives will also be equipped with the leadership and transformational competencies necessary to strengthen their organisations and discern the longer term impact shaping today’s new reality.
As we chart a path toward a post-COVID-19 world, the masterclass will focus on the 3 big ‘R’s:
- Responding with practical, short-term tactics: Global industry trends and opportunities, leadership in the age of disruption and uncertainty
- Reshaping business practices: Digitalisation and business transformation, innovation to support the sustainability agenda
- Rebooting for sustainable growth: Globalisation in a post-pandemic world, scenario planning and foresight for organisations
