Exploring Strategic Opportunities from the Pandemic

21st July, 2020 @ 7:00 pm


21/07/2020 - 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


The global pandemic is presenting challenges to all global communities and particularly to education. Boards need to be acutely aware of the new political, economic, and social environments in which schools are now operating, what is likely to change and strategies to respond. This webinar will address issues arising out of the pandemic and provide a series of provocations for boards to consider.

Valerie Hannon considers that challenges and difficulties experienced during the pandemic can also be sources of motivation for creativity and entrepreneurial thinking that boards should harness and exploit.

Valerie has framed possible actions over three horizons which boards should consider: respond, in which an organisation deals with the present situation and manages continuity; post peak transitioning, during which a an organisation learns and emerges stronger; and reimagine, where the organisation prepares for and shapes a different future.

This presentation will assist Board members to think strategically about the impact of the pandemic now and into the future.


 This session will be conducted virtually via Zoom.
