It was once again an honour to be asked to chair OM’s annual flagship conference, previously known as Smart Sourcing Summit, now rebranded as GBS SUMMIT.
The theme this year was “Road To Resilience: Business And Economic Recovery After COVID-19.”
It seemed rather odd that we should pick a theme that focused on ‘post-pandemic recovery’ when we are if fact right smack in the middle of a lockdown. Cases are at an all-time high!
But this time round, the lockdown comes with a ray of hope! A hope that we can all be vaccinated soon; and a hope that we can reach herd immunity soon enough!
A post pandemic recovery period is well within sight!
With this in mind, we decided to focus our conversations this year on Business Resilience and what it means to the Process Of Business Recovery.
In his book simply entitled “Resilience”, the author Eric Greitens writes: “People get better when things get hard. By using our inner strength , we can make the best out of a bad situation. It’s a matter of building up Courage, Strength & Wisdom. In other words, it’s about becoming resilient”.
Contrary to what some may choose to believe, Resilience is not an elusive quality that some organizations have and others lack. It’s a practice that we can build - by simply refusing to give up, despite the rejection and criticism we encounter. We all have the capacity for resilience. And, it is by cultivating resilience, that we can discover our true passion and pursue it, even when the odds seem to be stacked against us.
Over 14 key industry influencers from
Malaysia, United Kingdom, South Africa and India - all sharing their thoughts in two (2) plenary sessions and four (4) keynote addresses.
