Overview (Program Summary)

The Coronavirus crisis has driven an unprecedented global experiment in remote working and social control with the end of the crisis unlikely to see business and society simply return to the way it used to be - many profound changes will remain to form a "new normal"...and many of these changes will be driven by technology, data and artificial intelligence.

In this engaging webinar, former Facebook ANZ CEO, Stephen Scheeler will unpack seven themes around how the world will change in a post-lockdown era, and what in-house legal counsel need to start considering now in order to prepare for this fast-approaching new normal.

These themes are:
1.    Social distancing becomes the law
2.    People are removed
3.    Ecosystems and supply chains are pandemic-proofed
4.    Data and technology step in to enable quick scaling
5.    Privacy is redefined
6.    Remote working accelerates
7.    Globalisation takes a hit

Following Stephen's presentation ACC Australia will be hosting a virtual networking session from 5.00 PM using our new virtual event platform! Grab a drink and we’ll break you into smaller groups so that you can catch up with peers, discuss the insights gained, share what you’ve been experiencing in your own workplace and how you’re planning for the “new normal”.
