Countdown to the Virtual VL Summit 4 June 2020
How can we stay responsible when it’s all about surviving?
At the Virtual VL Summit 2020, we will focus on the crucial dilemmas that business leaders must deal with in the aftermath of the corona crisis. How can businesses maintain their active and positive commitments to social responsibility at a time when surviving and getting back on track demands their full attention? What is the way forward?
The global economic crisis in the wake of the pandemic now looks like it will be way worse than the global financial crisis of 2008-09. Every second Danish job is closely tied to exports. It is time to innovate and to create new business models and products. It’s time to consider new supply chains and ways of trade. How can we stick to our values and corporate responsibility in the new post-corona adaption process? That will be the main focus of this Virtual VL Summit. It is our values that will show the way forward for new opportunities when we emerge from the crisis.
A regrettable but necessary change
The plans for a strong and ambitious VL Summit in Aarhus on the 4th of June regrettably had to be cancelled, both due to the corona crisis and because we expect that our members in particular will be very busy in their role as business leaders once society starts to return to normal.
For this reason, the Supervisory Board of the Danish Mangement and the Steering Committee in Aarhus have decided to replace the physical meeting of the VL Summit 2020 by a virtual session which we will make available to all of you free of charge.
An ambitious Virtual VL Summit
We are just as ambitious about the content of the Virtual VL Summit 2020 as we are about the content of the physical VL Summit. Even though the Virtual Summit is a new format, we have already secured participation from a number of the Danish and global speakers that would have been part of the summit in Aarhus on the 4th of June. We will present a highly relevant virtual programme for you which we are confident will be of inspiration to you all.
We are looking forward to meeting you virtually on the 4th of June at 15.30pm.
MARCH 27, 2020, COPENHAGEN.
Virtual Summit replacing the VL Summit in Aarhus 2020
Regrettably we have had to cancel the Summit 2020 in Aarhus, Denmark due to the ongoing COVID-19 concerns. As your health and safety are our highest priority, the Supervisory Board has decided to cancel the physical Summit. In stead we are planning for a virtual Summit – still the 4th of June – with a number of the fantastic keynotes performing.
We will keep you closely posted, and hope that you will find time to check in on our site on the 4th of June – or any time later at your choice to watch the program which will be made available for free to all VL-members.
Stay safe and strong.
Danish Management Society (VL)
Virtual platform will be provided ahead of the meeting.
