… and the lessons we can learn from it for everyday business

The event is organized by the Competence Center for Sustainability Transformation and Responsibility.

Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, we have seen examples of people from all walks of life demonstrating exemplary leadership – and we have seen decision-makers fail miserably. In all these cases, there are important lessons to be learned. It is also a chance to discuss what leadership in a crisis really means and to identify best practices to help us be better prepared for future crises, as well as an opportunity to celebrate the many everyday leaders who emerged from this crisis and demonstrated responsible leadership.
