SEMINAR FOR DEVELOPING FREE ZONE LEADERS IN ADVERSITY
A Video based Training as part of AICE 2021 virtual event
Seminar Director: Dr Mohan Guruswamy, Chief Knowledge Officer, World FZO
In recent times the world economy is characterized by slowing investment flows, decelerating global trade, slow jobs growth rate, demand concerns, lack of consumer confidence and above all, risk of protectionism. In order to survive and flourish, businesses have to constantly endeavor to equip themselves with requisite skills – skills that would not only enhance the operational efficiency and sustainability of business but also empower them to build resilience and overcome the steady flow of challenges both present and future.
It follows that Leadership development in such adverse situation deserves to gain top priority especially at this point of time.
In this context, World FZO will deliver an online Video based training Seminar – Leadership in Adversity - Seminar for developing executives from the Free Zone Ecosystem, as part of the World FZO’s Annual International Conference and Exhibition 2021
