(Past Event) From Reactivity to Adaptability—Advice and Resources for Businesses on the Rebound

Event details

It's clear: Businesses are no longer in pandemic reactivity mode. They are shifting to adaptable strategies to push them into recovery and growth stages. As the landscape evolves and many are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel, join us for our third Challenge and Change online event to learn how to prepare for the next phase of international business as vaccines roll out around the globe.

This online panel event is hosted by Forum for International Trade Training (FITT) and features an exceptional roster of seasoned business professionals with expertise in finance, supply chain, risk management, and SME growth. Together, they will discuss the most pertinent questions on many business professionals' minds, uncovering their insights about the international trade ecosystem, along with strategies and resources that businesses can use to prepare, plan and thrive.
