Webinar Recap: How Mid-Market Companies Can Emerge Stronger Post-Pandemic

Written By &Marketing

On July 27, 2020

Is your business ready for the “new normal” post-pandemic?

Most mid-market companies have taken the right immediate actions in response to the coronavirus outbreak: They’ve followed health and safety guidelines in their workplaces, cut costs, and taken out loans and grants. However, the changes in customer and employee behaviors and attitudes are so deep that companies must reexamine how they do business, and ensure it fits the emerging “new normal.” 

For most mid-market companies, things will never go back to what they were, and strategies that worked in the past may no longer apply. Smart leaders will seize these changes as opportunities to become stronger and more competitive. 

Our last webinar focused on identifying and examining the new business trends that have emerged as a result of COVID-19, and how to leverage these changes as opportunities to adapt your business and sustain long-term growth. Amanda Cook hosted our panelists, who shared their valuable insights based on decades of experience in the trenches dealing with these issues:

  • Rajat Kapur, &Marketing’s Managing Director
  • Bob Olsen, who brings decades of marketing leadership and change management experience from DuPont, FXI, and Deloitte Consulting

  • Rahul Kapur of Icon Investment Partners, who brings 35+ years of business transformation experience

During the webinar, we learn:

  • The key business discontinuities and changes that have emerged from COVID-19 and the opportunities they present
  • The key areas that require immediate attention from mid-market companies, and the actions they must take to sustain long-term growth:

    • Redefine the customer experience
    • Revive relationships with employees 
    • Restructure your supply chain
    • Rethink and reset your strategy
