IoD South Webinar: "Bio-Inspired Business: How to use nature as a tool for crisis management"

16 Sep 2020
Online webinar, Online

How well has your business survived the covid crisis to date? 

The ability to generate a solid, effective crisis strategy that carries you and your team through a disaster and out the other side is something that all Directors must master.
In this webinar we’ll be introducing you to the concept of bio-inspired business and the ultimate business strategist – nature. With nearly 4 billion years of experience in crisis management the natural world knows a thing or two about responding to disruption and coming out stronger.

By studying how a living organism deals with a negative event and emulating those principles in business we can ensure that our own organisations both survive and thrive in a post covid world. 

Participants in this webinar will:

- Reflect on how their business has navigated the covid crisis to date with the opportunity to share their experiences with peers
- Understand how nature responds to crisis in ways that prioritise survival above all else and consider the long-term positive outcomes of seemingly ‘negative’ responses (e.g. cutbacks and redundancies)
- Come away with a toolkit of nature’s crisis strategy principles to apply in their own business around leadership, prioritisation, decision making, and effective communication.
- Ask any questions they have around bio-inspired crisis management

This webinar will be a highly applicable introduction to biomimicry as a much-needed innovation tool for adapting your business for success during these chaotic times.

We hope to see you there!
