COVID-19 and the return of war to Europe have highlighted that more than ever, predicting the future is saddled with many uncertainties.
How, then, should we consider "preparing for the future"? What kind of skills and capacities are required both at the individual and organisational level? How can organisations build resilience?
Recent crises – the pandemic, the financial crisis, the war in Ukraine, but also crises of a more creeping nature, namely climate change – pose fundamental challenges for risk and crisis management. This session explores risk and crisis management, and provides practical strategies on how you can better prepare for the future and respond to potential challenges.
