Life Beyond the Pandemic - A Business Perspective
As the world entered the start of the next decade, few could have imagined let alone foreseen the way in which 2020 would unfold. From the early stages of infection, the speed in which the coronavirus pandemic erupted across the globe resulted in unprecedented disruption to the global business landscape.
Business had to change at pace and with agility as many of the previous ways of working, were not fit for purpose. Organisations were confronted with the very real challenge of adapting or becoming irrelevant, or worse still to disappear completely.
As we now enter the second half of the year, many organisations have increased their speed of decision making, accelerated their technological advances, embraced new or alternative ways of working and are engaging and collaborating with colleagues and customers in a new, more inclusive manner.
Over the past couple of months, we have had the opportunity to meet with a number of prominent General Counsels (GCs) and members of the executive teams of both regional and Multi-National Corporations (MNCs) from across Asia, the Middle-East and Europe. These discussions provided first-hand insights into the ways in which organisations are dealing with, managing through and starting to emerge from the pandemic.
