Armed with his customary pint of bitter and a packet of Steak flavour pringles – not your typical Supper Club cuisine – our host Lee kicked off the final episode of our virtual trilogy:
A pertinent topic at the best of times; the Covid-19 outbreak has underlined the need to instil operational resilience before, during and after a crisis so businesses can respond, recover and thrive.
A summary of the second installment of the GRC 'virtual' Supper Club trilogy (the 17th event overall), which took place on 28 May, 2020
This collaboration tool – and the remote working culture it breeds – has the potential to become the ‘new normal’ for many businesses long after the Covid-19 pandemic has been consigned to history. But what about the potential risks?
With this in mind, we decided to ask our three esteemed speakers: will companies start to embrace the ‘Zoom’ work culture and how will this impact their risk environment?
We also had Danny illustrating the key themes as we went, his artwork will help us collectively drive content from the events going forward.
The central theme was really workplace personas, perceived communications challenges and whether technology would help bridge these gaps. Can anyone hear Roger's BS detector going off?... phew. I was too tall to qualify for a Tom Cruise risk assessment prior to the event, so please let us know what you thought of the topic and event through the survey below.
It was a pleasure, as always, bringing together old and new GRC friends. If you enjoyed it shout it from the roof tops, if you didn't please keep it to yourself ;)
I still have a few of the Groucho Marx glasses and cigars, if anyone wants a memento to wear around the Christmas Day dinner tables. The GRC SC will never forget Tom Edwards tinkling the ivories in the bar with 4 people stood around him singing as if in the war years - haha.
Also, A huge thank you to Rajat and Manoj for their fantastic talks which helped to facilitate the conversations throughout the night.
Following on from the great discussions, I thought I would let you know 2 things that may be of interest:
See you all in 2016.
