Breakout Discussion/Virtual Happy Hour: 5-5:30pm

Times are hard. At the very least, times are uncertain.

Winston Churchill once said, “a crisis is a terrible thing to waste.” When everything falls apart, it can be a chance to take stock and remodel your company.

For this webinar, 8 Ways To Re-Invent Yourself In A Crisis, Vernon Brokke will walk you through a tool to identify areas of your business to invest in while cutting other areas. He’ll also share some case studies of other founders who have pivoted in a crisis.

The presentation will address:

• 5 Stages of Recovery and Bounce Back

• How to pick the parts of your business that are worth keeping (and what to get rid of right now)

• How one founder decided to use a crisis to exit 6 of 7 business units only to go on and sell the remaining business unit for a double-digit multiple

• How to leverage digital and virtual channels to bring your product or service to market when your traditional business model is compromised

• How to leverage social media groups to build your business at little or no cost as more people flock to social media to combat isolation

• One surprising source of financing for your business right now

You’ll leave this webinar clearer on what you need to do and energized to get it done.

Participants will receive a copy of eBook 8 Ways To Re-Invent Yourself In A Crisis after the webinar.
