WEBINAR – May 19: Guiding the Reopening of American Business: An Expert Roundtable

New York Academy of Sciences

The webinar is free, but advance registration is necessary. 


Pressure is rising for businesses to unlock their doors, but much is still unknown about the course of the COVID-19 pandemic and there is no definitive or comprehensive guidance currently available. Experts in science, technology, insurance and risk assessment, as well as large and small business operations in the U.S., will discuss key elements of a sound road map for the nation’s businesses (and their employees, customers, and suppliers) as they resume operations.

  • How can businesses best ensure the health and safety of their employees and customers while mitigating operational risks and legal liability?
  • Across industries, what are the best practices for businesses in designing a plan, implementing procedures, and monitoring outcomes?
  • What new solutions exist to manage key business activities such as payments, customer contact, and employee/customer interactions in the “new normal?”
