[Member Only]: Weathering the storm – best practices and case studies in crisis management during COVID-19

Webinar | May 14th,Thursday | 10AM-11:30AM

The COVID-19 outbreak in late January took most companies by surprise, and the associated disruptions in supply chains, demand, and general operations had a considerably negative impact on businesses, especially SMEs. One of the key lessons that we can derive from the current situation is the importance of having a sound crisis management plan in place. The European Chamber is thus pleased to invite you to join our upcoming Forum meeting, which will cover not only the topic of crisis management but also will provide specific examples of best practices throughout the COVID-19 outbreak and throughout past crises.

Mr Fabio Stella, China Head of Sales and Business Development at Hawksford, will discuss the lessons learned by European manufacturers during the 2008-09 financial crisis that has endured until recent days and present the the tools that can help their China operations to face this new challenge. Mr Sebastjan Semrajc, Vice Chair of the SME Forum in South China and Back Office Director at Elrad Dongguan, will discuss Elrad’s experience throughout the crisis and which practices helped the company continue operations throughout the crisis. Mr Marco Förster, Chair of the SME Forum in South China, will moderate the session.
