Trinity Business School has partnered with Ibec to launch a free series of workshops and seminars to help businesses rebuild in the Covid economy.
The Reboot & Reignite series, starting from 22 September, brings together top academics, business leaders and industry experts over a series of eight online workshops. The seminars are open to business leaders and owners to participate. The series looks at important questions and challenges that are being faced by business organisations today.
Participants will engage with the panel in exploring these issues with the aim of taking away solutions and fresh innovative perspectives.
Led by Trinity Business School’s Director of Executive Education, Michael Flynn, the seminar will give participants the opportunity to hear from Ibec CEO, Danny McCoy, Trinity Business School’s Dean and Chair of Business Studies, Professor Andrew Burke, CEO & Founder of Pharmapod, Leonora O’Brien and CEO & Founder of Manna, Bobby Healy.
The speakers will discuss how individuals can go about ‘reigniting’ their businesses using strategic and innovative thinking, and reimagining their business model in ways that ‘allow you to not waste a good crisis.’
Speaking this week, Dean and Chair of Business Studies at Trinity Business School, Professor Andrew Burke said, "In the current crisis we felt we had a responsibility to help our communities, to help an eco-system that we benefit from and provide support to businesses struggling after the hardships of a pandemic. In many ways, this became the inspiration for our ‘Reboot and Reignite’ campaign. When the world went into lockdown, remote working proved to be a productive surprise. Output not only continued but digital innovation in business accelerated. International projects and meetings were propelled forward and international business travel was shown to be far less needed than ever imagined before."
He added, "So alongside discussing the key challenges that businesses will face, such as cashflow, thriving in an economic downturn and shaping digital strategies, the workshops will also focus on creating a sustainable recovery, taking into account ethical considerations, such as tackling the climate emergency and creating an inclusive society."
