The impact of COVID-19 has been one of the largest challenges the world has faced in over a generation and has been a hugely traumatic experience for many. A year since the pandemic began, the spread and scale of coronavirus continues to grow and devastate lives and families and has caused disruption and damage on a unprecedented scale to businesses of all sizes and sectors across the globe. Although we enter 2021 under lockdown conditions, there are signs of hope that the impact of the vaccine may be felt in the near future and recovery can, and will, begin.
At this Glasgow Talks, join us as we hear from the leaders of British Chambers of Commerce from Shanghai, Singapore and Australia, who will each discuss how their cities, countries, economies and business communities have responded to the disruption from the virus and some of the challenges and solutions they have faced.
Our speakers include: James Dunn - Executive Director of British Chamber of Commerce Shanghai, David Kelly - Executive Director of British Chamber of Commerce Singapore and David McCredie, Chief Executive Officer of the Australian British Chamber of Commerce.
Glasgow Talks - sponsored by the Adam Smith Business School and the Clydesdale Bank - is the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce's monthly series of business seminars featuring influential guest speakers drawn from the business and political elite.
