Webinar: Three Legends and a Recession
Held July 1, 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent economic shutdowns brought to an end a period of 11 straight years of economic growth. And while this recession is certainly unique, challenges are being exacerbated by the fact that, given the length of the prior economic expansion, many executives have limited or no experience managing the minefields of a recession. For those executives who successfully managed through them, previous recessions have provided valuable lessons.
View three past recipients of the PACT Legend Lifetime Achievement Award, all key leaders in our region who have each helped myriad companies successfully navigate the waters of severe recession, discuss the unique challenges, opportunities and lessons learned from past recessions as we seek to understand - and reemerge from - the current one.
Webinar: How to Run a Successful Virtual Company
Held May 22, 2020
With the impact of COVID-19, most if not all office-based businesses have been forced to go virtual. But what should executives do differently when running a virtual company to ensure it functions successfully? Nick Wilkinson, CEO of Binary Tree, has a unique understanding of how to successfully operate a virtual organization, including both the tricks and potential traps, having gained experience leading a 100% virtual organization of more than 150 employees spread over 10 countries in North America, Europe, and Asia. He and moderator Allen Born review the technology, processes, and culture that have allowed Binary Tree, a leader in cloud migration solutions, to compete at the highest levels.
FAIRMOUNT IN THE NEWS
"With technology and software companies, earnings is rarely the yardstick for calculating value, says Charles Robins, managing director of investment bank Fairmount Partners and head of its technology practice. "There is frequently a very substantial gap in understanding between the people who operate technology businesses and the way these businesses are viewed and evaluated,” Charles Robins says."
