Business Relaunch – Getting back to work

Shing Digital is an IT services and solutions organization. Although our industry has been deemed an essential service, we are not in the same class nurse or doctors providing life saving care. Our job is to help organizations to continue to operate through these unprecedented times. In the spirit of that, we wanted to give back to the business community by getting good information into the hands of the business leaders that need it.

The virtual town hall was put together to help organizations with information on how to formulate their relaunch strategies. Over the course of this Pandemic, I have been spoken with many of our clients and there was a common thread: many are confused about the multitudes of guidance that is available and many of them did not have a relaunch strategy ready or started.

We have brought together experts on business ethics, infectious diseases, human resources, and myself, CaSh Wong (Shing Digital’s President), to talk about the lessons of this Pandemic and key considerations on formulating your relaunch plan.

The speakers on the virtual town hall are:
