Event Details

As the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak continues to grow, organisations across the globe find themselves in various stages of the crisis management lifecycle, with companies in China experiencing by far the most severe immediate impact. Business operations around the world have been hit to varying degrees by the spread of the virus and increasingly, government measures to contain it.

Our speakers will highlight different angles.

Chairman of DutchCham, Ms Maaike van Meer will reveal the impact the outbreak has had so far on our members by sharing a summary of our recent survey. Our second speaker is CEO of Gleneagles Hospital, Mr Dirk Schraven, who will zoom in on the overall response of Hong Kong healthcare system, its potential scenarios and bottlenecks and practical tips. Since it is impossible to predict the scope, severity and duration of the outbreak, companies will need to prepare for a protracted crisis that might last for months, with the emergence of a broad and complex set of challenges. Our third speaker, Mr Kent Kedl from Control Risks will share his analysis on the impact COVID-19 is having on businesses in Greater China and beyond and the key areas of focus for business leaders in the coming months.
