Thriving in volatile times

Managing Costs
Thriving in volatile times

(This session is held in English)


Over the past year, the signs have become clearer and more apparent. The tides in the global economy are changing. And after a historically long period of expansion, the outlook is uncertain. It prompts companies to ask two questions: What will happen? And how should we react?


No one knows the answer to the first question. However, the general consensus in the market is that a slowdown is coming.


The answer to the second question is twofold.


Firstly, understand how different businesses reacted during similar times – and with what outcomes. Secondly, understand how margin improvement programs are rapidly changing these years.


In this session, we will dive into market predictions and cost-management strategies – and we will give our point of view on how businesses should navigate in more volatile waters to come out stronger.


Target group: C-suite, senior management and business developers
