Join the Telfer MBA Alumni Community for a special evening online.

Our way of life has dramatically changed with the COVID-19 outbreak. The pandemic shutdown has had an enormous impact on our personal lives and, most significantly, on the organizations we work for or do business with.

Remote working is the new normal and shifts in mindset have propelled many changes within organization. Companies have found ways to reinvent themselves. From distilleries switching to make hand sanitizer to the resurgence of drive-in movie theatres, savvy businesses have been able to make the best of a bad situation.

Log on to hear how four successful organizations have pivoted their business in the face of the pandemic. Our guest speakers will share their stories, achievements and the creative ideas that helped them adapt their business to the new reality.
