MUNICH LAUNCH EVENT: Turning Crisis into Opportunity

Tue, Jun 30, 2020, 2:00 PM (CEST)

About this event

On June 30, 2020, we said "WILLKOMMEN" to our guests and community members as we launched the new HBS Online Community Chapter for Germany and the DACH region!

We discussed what you can look forward to as part of this community and what resources are available to you to make the most of your Harvard experience as we adjust to our new COVID reality.

We also had the honour of hosting four executive managers from the Harvard community (IT Services, E-Learning, Fintech, Recruiting) who discussed practical managerial aspects of the coronavirus pandemic, including how decision-makers in each industry are reacting to this development as well as how to identify, develop and take advantage of opportunities in times of crisis to turn panic into potential.
