In Episode 8 of our #TIMETOLEAD leadership podcast series, Paul Eagland, Managing Partner BDO in UK and member of the Global Board, looks ‘over the horizon’ and shares his personal views on how the economic landscape and businesses will look like after the crisis.

Months of worldwide lock-down have seen soaring infection rates and devastating loss of life. With the forced closure of the worldwide economy and the consequential impact on people’s personal lives, so much uncertainty still remains. Will businesses reopen and jobs bounce back? Are we at risk of a global recession? What can businesses do to protect themselves?

In an open discussion with Eleisha Stevens of InspireWorx, Paul talks about the important lessons from the crisis and how businesses will have to rethink their business models, build resilience to cope with the unexpected, and best prepare for future situations. This will not be the last crisis. Business leaders will need to reconfirm their purpose, explore how they can best engage with their clients, and find the courage to stretch themselves above stakeholder return. 

We hope you appreciate the rich content and valuable insights of these podcasts, and these will help you to emerge stronger from the current situation. Together we will create vibrant economies in our Dutch Caribbean islands, and ensure the well-being of our communities.

Best regards,
Gerd Glaudemans
Managing Partner BDO Dutch Caribbean
