As governments around the world set timelines for lifting COVID-19 lockdowns, businesses are developing their own re-opening strategies in a climate of real uncertainty. While many aspects of the current economic crisis are—like the virus itself—novel, previous economic slumps carry valuable lessons for policymakers and business leaders today. At the time of the last major downturn in the global economy, in 2008, David Cote was CEO of Fortune 100 conglomerate Honeywell and Henry M. Paulson, Jr. served as the United States Secretary of the Treasury. Together, they will share their experiences of leadership during time of crisis and describe how a focus on both short and long-term objectives can help businesses win the recovery.
Copies of David Cote’s new book, Winning Now, Winning Later: How Companies Can Succeed in the Short Term While Investing for the Long Term, is available for pre-order here through our local book partner, The Book Cellar.
