We cordially invite you to participate in our webinar on “Consumer Behaviour in a Crisis” in partnership with GDI Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute on April 22, 2020.
About the Lecture
The COVID-19 outbreak has a major social and economic impact on the world. But, how has this unprecedented crisis changed the way consumers are spending? In this webinar, we will discuss the sudden and unavoidable shift in consumer behaviour and how innovation and new services may respond. With a focus on food, fashion and wellbeing industries, what are the post-crisis scenarios we might face?
