Women Leaders Discuss: Moving Forward with Data-Driven Business Continuity

29. 4. 2020 @ 10:30 - 11:30 SMT

[vc_video link=’’]



The pandemic has forever changed the way we do business. The persistent question in everyone’s minds: how do we move forward against the spectre of uncertainty?

With a view to being hopeful yet cautious, this interactive online discussion will explore how businesses can pivot and adapt, informed largely by insights from their company’s data structures.

Two optimistic and data-centric business leaders – each representing SMBs and MNCs – share views on their challenges and the early successes of their business continuity efforts.

Business managers, owners and anyone keen to learn and contribute to the live discussion are encouraged to register early for this FREE online event.


Q. Is it free to join?
A. Yes! Participation is free, but slots are limited, so please register early!

Q. I’m based outside of Singapore. Can I still join?
A. Absolutely! This is an APAC-wide online event. Just note the live stream times for each chapter/city:
9:30 AM to 10:15 AM in BANGKOK
12:30 AM to 1:15 PM in SYDNEY, MELBOURNE
2:30 PM to 3:15 PM in AUCKLAND

Q. Is it only for women?
A. Just like our regular She Loves Data #MeetUp events, this online webinar is open to all professional men and women. #HeLovesData too!

Q. Is this an interactive discussion or just a ‘listen-in’ webinar?
A. Definitely interactive! Your thoughts, feedback and questions are most welcome and will be entertained during the polling and live Q&A portions at the end of the discussion.

Q. What if something comes up and I need to retract my registration?
A. Please be considerate and let us know if you won’t be able to attend the online meetup by April 24, so we can offer your place to somebody else.
