Webinar: COVID-19 and the Board’s Role
May 27, 2020
GGA Teaches at the Accredited Executive Compensation Program
May 27, 2020

April 30 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

To say that these are ‘uncharted waters’ is to severely underestimate the impact of our current situation in the Calgary marketplace. And while we are experiencing some of the most challenging corporate conditions right now, that doesn’t mean that we can’t draw upon the learning from previous, major ‘Black-Swan’ crises. What we have learned from global financial meltdowns, massive oil price crashes, the flood of 2013, etc., is that sound corporate governance, balanced decision-making and key retention are high on the ‘strategies that worked’ list when navigating black-swan events. And COVID-19 has now become the ‘high-water mark’ for these events.

Join Panelists, Arden Dalik, Paul Gryglewicz and Neil Weerasekera in a Calgary-based organization exclusive interactive webinar addressing Calgary market insights and actions, strategies being considered by you and your peers, along with tips to deal with ‘Black-Swan’ crises and much more.


This webinar, co-sponsored by GGA and CTRN, will be interactive, with the presenting, posting and discussing polling questions and taking your questions live.
