COVID-19 Survival Training for Family Businesses

Wednesday, April 15th 10 am EST

COVID-19 may cause many businesses to enter a time of crisis. Liquidity may be short due to curfews and customers cancelling their orders. Family businesses are on an emotional level much more difficult to manage, as employees have often been with the company for a long time and the family feels a high degree of responsibility to its work force. Mass lay offs are usually not the preferred option and often lead to a critical loss of speed. On the other side, when managing a crisis correctly family businesses are better equipped than public companies to come out of it stronger than before.

Octavian Graf Pilati is a specialist in applying Design Thinking in Crisis Management. In the years 2015-2018 he successfully managed an existential crisis in the family business stemming from a failed investment.

This Opalesque SKILLSLAB webinar will cover:

  • What to do in times of crisis and what not to do
  • Tools that can be used to navigate crisis
  • The Art of Accepting Crisis Paradoxons
  • Managing a Crisis Starts With Managing Stress
  • The 7 P's of Managing a Crisis
  • Turning Adversity into Opportunity

Octavian Graf Pilati comes from a family (Khevenhüller) whose history dates back to before the year 1000. He studied mechanical engineering at the TU Vienna and is well known in Austria as one of the country’s youngest palace owners.
