The More or Less Likely Macroeconomic Implications of the Great Lockdown
Join us for the 1 hour live webinar on Tuesday, June 2, 2020 (10:00 AM, Montreal, UTC-4)

Following the outbreak of COVID-19, we hear a lot about "flattening the curve", this applies to both the health and economic dimensions of the pandemics that cannot be considered independently. What are the macroeconomic effects of the Great Lockdown on key variables regarding business cycles, growth and development? What are the justifications for the fiscal and monetary policies being implemented and their current and future challenges ahead ? What do we know and what don’t we know about the path ahead?
In this highly uncertain context, clearly no one can pretend to have all the answers. However, macroeconomics suggests some points that should not be lost to expect a better future for all.

Happiness at work

Webinar broadcast Thursday, May 28, 2020.
A replay will be available soon.

In these time of crisis, leaders are faced with new challenges in business, specifically those related to their employees. The Happiness At Work (HAW), is aimed to promote the human perspective in management, particularly employee relations, especially that we are faced with more dehumanization of organizations.

Indeed, in the recent years, technology has jumped ahead of leaders and organizations, and the human element must catch up more than ever due to remote work needed by the new social distancing reality.

Watch this webinar
Webinar broadcast Thursday, May 13, 2020.
Recent developments in donor procurement practices have signaled a paradigm shift from pure price based evaluation (lowest evaluated bid) to more subtle techniques taking into account what is called "value for money" (most advantageous bid). In this webinar we will discuss how these changes have impacted the treatment of abnormally low tenders using a straightforward approach allowing participants to interact with the presenter and have their most pressing questions answered.

The COVID-19 pandemic has really hammered home the message to each and every organizational leader around the globe that we live in a world of uncertainty. That is the only thing we can be certain about.

In such a world, we must expect the unexpected and manage and lead accordingly. But, how do we do this? What are the solid foundations of leadership that we can build and access that will serve us well in our decision-making, irrespective of what the future holds? This webinar introduces you to the three essential levels of awareness – or consciousness – of global leaders in the 2020s and to the realm of “Strategic Assumptions” that will serve you well in this volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world.
