PIVOT: A Virtual Panel Series – From Crisis to Pivot – How These Organizations Shifted Gears
April 16, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
In this session, we will hear from two incredible women who have led their organizations through enormous change due to COVID-19.
Kerry Chalmers is Director, Sales and Partner Events, at Cisco Global Events. In January 2020, Kerry began attending daily briefings for COVID-19 Crisis Management and the associated response, weeks before the tidal wave of change had hit North America. Kerry and her team have worked tirelessly over the last few months shifting events of 3 to 30,000 people from live to digital. She will share insights and lessons she learned through this monumental shift in program.
In early March, the Canadian Federal government put an open call out to the business community to retool and shift production in order to meet the increased need of equipment and supplies in the fight against COVID-19. AG Hair was one of those companies that stepped up to the plate early on. Michele Matthews, Executive Vice President at AG Hair, has successfully led a restructure of the workforce to take up the challenge of converting their production of hair and beauty products to hand sanitizer, developing protocol to allow employees to work safely in their facility during the lockdown.
