Cybersecurity Awareness and You

Post-Pandemic Economy: Sketches of a Possible Future

Later in the afternoon at 1:00 p.m. ET, join Douglas Kennedy, Managing Director of the Centre for Global Enterprise at the Schulich School of Business, for a second keynote presentation on the post-pandemic economy. 

A year ago, words like ‘COVID-19’ and ‘’K’-shaped recovery’ had not entered the popular lexicon and almost nobody would have predicted the dislocation most national economies have already experienced in 2020. Whatever emerges for business and the economy after the pandemic, it is likely to be quite different than that which prevailed before. What challenges and opportunities will exist for Canadian business in a post-pandemic world?

Examples of the issues to be explored:

• When will economic growth resume and which sectors will likely be winners and which sectors may lose?

• How will unprecedented government borrowing be managed and repaid? What impact will this have on the wider economy?

• Value chains now need to consider issues of resilience and reliability. What can Canadian companies do to insulate themselves?

• New risk factors for business are making themselves felt. What are these and how can they be mitigated?

• COVID-19 has accelerated changes in popular culture, business operations and consumer behaviour. How should Canadian business respond for greatest advantage? 

Join this session to help understand where your business is and possibly where you should be taking it.
