Webinar overview

For many companies, trying to navigate finances through this time of uncertainty and disruption is challenging. Businesses around the world are being severely impacted by COVID-19 and the severity of the financial impact will vary by industry, and will be highly dependent on the time it takes to get the situation under control.

A critical first step is to be proactive in assessing your company’s capability to withstand disruption, and the options available to identify, and respond to potential opportunities. The revenue lost during the period of COIVD-19 represents a permanent loss rather than a timing difference and is putting sudden, unanticipated pressure on working capital lines and liquidity.  Building solid plans to respond and recover will define how you thrive in the new normal.
