Rainmaking Webinar: Why Crises Call for Innovation, (Not Hibernation)

WEBINAR : A panel discussion about innovation application in time of crisis to make significant savings and identify new opportunities for growth.

Business innovation has fallen by over 200% during the Covid-19 crisis, and many executives turn towards short, quick-wins - reducing costs, laying off staff, and cancelling planned investments in growth projects to survive. This is all understandable.

Around the world, individuals and companies are rising to meet this moment with ingenuity and focus. The question that leaders across the business must ask themselves is this: Will this crisis force us to turn our backs on the future, or will we treat this moment as a critical opportunity to commit to innovation as the surest path towards future resilience and growth?

In the last twenty years, organisations have had to navigate a number of challenging market events – the burst of the bubble, the 2008 financial crisis, and Brexit. None compare to what we are faced with now with Covid-19. 

So, how can you begin to turn uncertainty to your advantage?

Join an exclusive panel discussion organised by Rainmaking where Csilla Kohalmi-Monfils, Innovation Director at ENGIE Fab, and four other business leaders will explore how innovation can be applied intelligently in a time of crisis to help you make significant savings and identify new opportunities for growth.

Join the panel discussion Moderated by Maija Palmer, Sifted.EU Innovation Editor, with : 

  • Stephen Rapoport, Vice President, Disruptive Innovation at Unilever,

  • Simon Torrance, a member of the World Economic Forum and author of “New Growth Playbook”
  • Tom Cheesewright, applied futurist and author of Future-Proof Your Business
