Free webinar

Time your local time

Session Outline

As Malta and most of the world have started the Covid-19 vaccination process, businesses need to continue focusing on the way forward. The panellists will provide insights on the main areas of focus to effectively plan for a post-pandemic world, with a specific focus on the Financial Services, Retail and Tourism industries. 

The webinar will highlight what specific and concrete actions should be taken to manage and mitigate risks expected from the COVID-19 aftermath. It will also provide practical examples on challenges faced by Maltese businesses, and discuss which practices we should keep, and which are those that we should let go. Finally, this webinar will also address ideas on how to prepare for a post-pandemic business environment.

Who should attend

Business owners and professionals in the financial services industry, including accountants, banking professionals, investment and insurance advisors and persons working directly or indirectly in the retail and tourism industries.
