SESSION 3 – MAY 5th | 14:00 GST (12:00 CEST)

COVID-19 has tested the resilience of many business processes.

Supply chains, crucial to all sectors, are among those most affected. All businesses are connected through a unique integrated supply chain.

The behavior of one company in the chain impacts every element in the ecosystem.

The COVID situation has seen supply chain managers and industrial planners rushing to increase their flexibility and adaptability.

In these trying times, businesses can gain a competitive advantage if they thoughtfully pause, reflect, and use this emergency as a catalyst for reinforcing their digital supply network models and capabilities.

By digitizing the value chain, they can create a harmonic flow of information and materials, which ensures visibility on all processes and one’s ability to control them

SESSION 4 – MAY 12th | 14:00 GST (12:00 CEST)

Prior to COVID-19, digitalization strategies were aimed at increasing productivity and efficiency. After the pandemic spread its effects to organizations across the world, it became an urgent necessity.

Many decisionmakers found themselves in the challenging situation of not only working from home, but also having to sort through the myriad options for digitalizing while collaborating with sub-optimal tech. In the post-COVID reality, maintaining productivity and general process functionality are tantamount to business survival. ​

​In this online event, we will illustrate how end-to-end digital (paperless) processes are key to safeguarding productivity. Join us in this session to find out how to select the right “tools” needed for your specific organization. We will cover: ​

– Electronic signatures ​

– Authentication & authorization mechanisms

​- Remote identification​

SESSION 5 – MAY 19th | 14:00 GST (12:00 CEST)

The COVID-19 crisis is teaching us that resilience is no longer a source of competitive advantage but a strategic necessity. The most successful organizations have a corporate culture which is both consistent and adaptable.

If you really want to build culture and trigger a change in employee mindset, you need to involve them in the process. 

In this session, we will discuss how to build the technology and mental stack for resilience, comprised of

• mind-set: the new principles of mindful leadership

• skill-set: the techno-business hard skills and emotional IQ

• tool-set: a phygital workplace and knowledge sharing ecosystem, new organizational models, and OKRs

SESSION 6 – JUNE 3rd | 14:00 GST (12:00 CEST)

The only thing we can be sure of today is that when we go out to the New World again, it will have surely changed. We won’t know how much, how profoundly, and how long the changes will last.​ ​

Determining whether this Black Swan has been a Monster that has destroyed everything in its path or a Mentor who has taught us great things will take years. Defining the enduring effects requires us to first see the true consequences.​

It is on a destructive path, we must act, decide, and move forward.​ ​

The crisis does not wait, the need does not wait, the markets do not wait, and people can no longer wait.​ Today, the situation has people looking for decisions, not answers.​ ​

We will go through the experiences of the C-levels who delivered their companies out of past crises.

They will help us understand how we can act in the current crisis in order to emerge even stronger.

SESSION 7 – JUNE 9th | 14:00 GST (12:00 CEST)

Session 10 - Accelerate your Digital Business: Key Trends and Ideas

SESSION 10 – JUNE 30th | 14:00 GST (12:00 CEST)

The pandemic has outbreak has fundamentally challenged the way companies operate in today’s world, where the rapid adoption of smart working has empowered most businesses to collaborate remotely and establish their virtual presence. This drastic cultural shift has been great news for society, as working from home is no longer considered a privilege.

Although the transition was smooth relative to its fast emergence, it has highlighted the limitation of the basic remote solutions, such as video calls and cloud sharing. In the “new normal”, the implementation of remote working is broader and deeper than most organizations realize. Competition will now rest on organizations’ abilities to run a digital business rather than to run a business digitally. To succeed, we do need not only technological support but a well thought, structured approach. Join us for a study of three key industries that have been significantly impacted:

– Smart Healthcare
– Smart Education
– Smart Hospitality

Joined by the C-Level industry experts who will discuss how to remain remotely agile and digitally competitive in the post pandemic world :

Ernesto Damiani : Professor and Director of Artificial Intelligence at Khalifa University

Benjamin Mores : Youth Program Director at EightHub | Smart Education

Raffaella Campagnoli : Founder & Director at LIRA | Smart Hospitality

Giorgio Casoni : CEO at Neocogita | Smart Healthcare

You will find takeaways that are relevant for any industry you work with. Don’t miss the capstone of our Black Swan Series.
