Resetting the Future of Work Agenda. Turning uncertainty into opportunity for growth

Thu, Nov 26, 2020, 4:00 PM (CET)

About this event

Covid-19 threw global markets in disarray. If you stop and check financial metrics for more than a few minutes, it’s easy to be discouraged. Add massive layoffs and headquarters closing into the mix, and in the blink of an eye the one thing you are sure about is the fear of the future. However, we’re hopeful. Adversity and resilient leaders are the perfect recipe for disruptive innovation that drives our ecosystem further.

This is a cross promoted event between Startup Grind chapters in Clus Napoca, Amsterdam, Warsaw and Oslo. Join us on Thursday November 26th at 5pm (GMT+2) or 6pm CET to learn more about how businesses can thrive in a challenging economy, priorities before and after CoVid, trends emerging in the CEE market and more.

We’ll touch on the following topics:

- What innovation looks like

- How priorities have changed before and after CoVid

- What are the trends emerging in the CEE market

- What opportunities are there for businesses to grow in trying times

- What the future of workforce will look like

- How culture comes into play in all of this
