2020: Learnings & Perspectives

Make your organisation future-proof and shock-resistant.

Join our Live Webinars

Our environment is evolving at an ever-increasing pace. Our awareness of the far-reaching and complex impacts of the current pandemic on all aspects of human life and activity is increasing with each piece of new data we collect and interpret. Constant shifts in innovation models, people management tools and digitalisation frameworks are (sometimes suddenly but unequivocally) affecting industries and economies. As disconcerting and challenging as this emerging jigsaw picture may seem, it also gives us the opportunity to reinvent the ways in which we think about and approach our businesses, workplaces and, ultimately, our lives.

Join our interactive 45-minute live sessions with top experts to get recommendations on how to maximise the use of technology and analyse key strategies to effectively manage your business.

Alexandre Papanastassiou

Integration Manager @ Emakina

Over the course of the past 20 years, Alexandre has been working to support business transitions as a key advisor for owners and senior decision makers of privately held European companies: growth out of start-up stage, hyper-growth, business reinvention to address disruption (digital agencies & consulting businesses, music, media / press, fashion retail, higher education...)

Aside from advisory and board level positions, he also operated ad interim from internal executive management positions and has been part of due diligence teams for professional investors.

Always on the market side of the frontier between business and technology, Alexandre likes looking at a business "from right to left", i.e. with the market as guiding star.
