Ground-breaking webinar series attracts 1,000th participant

April 27, 2020. Shanghai – A webinar series championed by CEIBS’ Switzerland campus to continue to share world-class management knowledge and piercing business insights during the COVID-19 crisis attracted its 1,000th participant.

The school launched Lessons for Leaders from the Pandemic, a programme of online events featuring school faculty and other leading thinkers from around the globe, in mid-March, with participants signing up from over 40 different countries so far.

As part of the series, Dr. Allan Bahroun, founder of Delect, a Shanghai-based research consultancy that brings human sciences to the world of business and organisations, headlined an exclusive webinar provided for the CIEBS alumni community. During the session, Dr. Bahroun put forth that the crisis has rapidly integrated digital media into everyday life and that it has demonstrated how embedded the internet has become in Chinese society.

CEIBS Zurich Campus CEO Dr. Robert Straw, who has hosted and moderated the events, explained the series was launched in close collaboration with the school’s main campus in Shanghai.

“The webinars, which have been attended by an average of 250 participants from over 20 countries, are a great way for us to stay in touch with international students, alumni, partners and prospective students,” he stated.

“We are grateful that the content we are offering – often in partnership with other institutions – has had such an incredible reach. It is a testament that the content we are providing is relevant and timely during these challenging times,” he added.

Other webinars in the series have included expert speakers such as David Watkins of Oerlikon AG, Leadership Coach Lisa Bevill, and David Bosshart of GDI Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute.

CEIBS faculty involved include Pascal Lamy, CEIBS Distinguished Professor and Former Director of WTO; Professor Ding Yuan, CEIBS Vice President and Dean; and Professor Emily David, Associate Professor of Management.
