The business landscape has changed fundamentally; tomorrow’s environment will be different, but no less rich in possibilities for those who are prepared.
It is increasingly clear that the current downturn is fundamentally different from recessions of recent decades. We are experiencing not merely another turn of the business cycle, but a restructuring of the economic order.
For some organizations, near-term survival is the only agenda item. Others are peering through the fog of uncertainty, thinking about how to position themselves once the crisis has passed and things return to normal. The question is, “What will normal look like?”
In response to the obvious challenges posed in times of crises, the Financial Institutions Training Centre (FITC) has continued to demonstrate it’s corporate purpose and leadership role in the knowledge and capacity building space by bringing together thought leaders and luminaries from a broad spectrum of industries for a live webinar with the theme ‘Post Crisis Recovery: Preparing for the New Normal’ on Thursday 23, 2020 at 10.00 (WAT) / 05.00 (ET).
The session which was moderated by Chizor Malize (MD/CEO, FITC) had the following key speakers in attendance: Dan Agbor (Chairman, UAC Nigeria Plc), Abubakar Suleiman (CEO Sterling Bank Plc), Rosie Ebe-Arthur (Group Head HR, FBN Holdings) and Fola Aiyesimoju (Group MD/CEO, UAC Nigeria Plc).
Its goal is to provide leaders and decision-makers with insights to navigating a crisis for which no playbook had hitherto been envisioned or developed.
Recall that on Thursday 9th April, a similar Leadership Summit live webinar with the theme: ‘Leaders need to re-think, re-strategize, and re-tool in the time of Crisis’ was organized. This featured key speakers like Bola Adesola (Senior Vice Chairman Africa, Standard Chartered Bank), Calistus Obetta (Group Executive, Tech and Services, FBN), Funke Amobi (Country Head, Human Capital, Stanbic IBTC Holdings Plc).
In furtherance of the FITC Future Series, FITC will be hosting another interactive free live webinar with the theme ‘Post COVID-19: Turning Adversity into Advantage’ on Tuesday, April 28, 2020, at 10.00 (WAT). The FITC Future Series is an innovative capacity building programme on Youth Connection Initiatives (YCI), a platform that builds synergy, insight, engagement, knowledge, and awareness among young people across diverse financial and non-financial sectors.
This 90 minutes live session will provide a platform for inspiring life coaches, successful entrepreneurs, tech innovators and serial investors to share insights on mind shifts and contemporary issues that drive effectiveness, innovation and growth and how to stay ahead of the game.
The keynote speaker is Fela Durotoye (President, Gemstone Nation Builders Foundation). Other speakers are Chude Jideonwu (Founder, Joy Inc & Co-founder, RED Media Group), Chinwe Egwim (Senior Economist, FBN Quest Merchant Bank), Steve Harris (CEO, EdgeEcution, Author & Motivational Speaker) and Chizor Maize (MD/CEO, FITC) as the moderator.
