About the session
Not many of us had planned for a time like this. Not personally nor professionally, which makes the idea of pivoting or adapting your business, extremely important. The key to success in these times is to recognise and develop a sustainable formula whilst also organising as an industry and as a community - both at a macro and micro level. Restaurateur and business owner, Gauri Devidayal shares her insights on pivoting her business for survival and strategising a roadmap to success. The talk will touch key areas including communication with stakeholders, digitisation as a value-add, unemployment vs reskilling teams during testing times and how best to get organised as an industry.
