About this second event: Managing from Chaos into a new Normal

As nations are slowly emerging from sheltering in place, lock-downs and quarantines, speculations of unprecedented societal and economic changes are spreading through the media around the globe. In this unique panel discussion between two exceptional, multidisciplinary thought-leaders, we take a step back to consider the bigger picture of the changes that are likely to impact societies and organizations in the upcoming new normal. To support business managers and political leaders who need to manage out of the chaos, we also take a step back and explore the increasing inequalities within the population, the shifts in supply and demand dynamics in global markets, the growing rifts between the regions of different technological development, the rising diplomatic and military risks, as well as the social fallout after months of volatile policy making. How much can we learn from previous pandemics or financial crises? What are we missing? Our objective is to challenge your understanding of the crisis, to develop your resilience mindset, and to provoke your imagination of what the return to normalcy might look like for you.
