Preparing for the unexpected

15 June 2020 | 10:00 - 11:00 for Greece & Cyprus
15 June 2020 | 09:00 - 10:00 for Malta

What is risk? And how can one navigate in uncharted waters? 

It is difficult to find anyone better to answer these questions than Dr. Nassim Nicholas Taleb, Distinguished Professor of Risk Engineering, NYU's Tandon School of Engineering, who introduces to us concepts about risk, the idea of the Black Swan, and explains why recent events don’t qualify as Black Swans.

The impact of recent events meant CEOs had to make tough decisions, and we hear back from them on the difficult choices they had to make, as well as what learnings they gathered to futureproof their organizations.

Finally, Theodosis Michalopoulos, CEO for Microsoft Greece, Cyprus and Malta, shares his perspectives on how technology can empower business leaders and society to cope with burning issues.

Register on the right and watch the 1st episode of Microsoft Synthesis, a joint endeavor produced by Microsoft and SKAI.
