In Webinar 2 in the series, US-based Google Vice President Dane Glasgow joined Professor Hugh Williams in conversation to discuss his career, perspectives on technology and venture investing in the US, how companies are coping with the COVID-19 crisis, and how it has changed his working life.

About this series: 

COVID-19 has changed the global business landscape

No organisation has been untouched by the impact of the coronavirus. While some organisations are fighting for survival, others are beginning to look beyond the near term to a future that is more uncertain than ever before. Redundancies and pay cuts are widespread, and government stimuli are propping up economies like never before.

Melbourne Business School’s “Talking Business During Crisis” webinar series will explored evidence-based perspectives on how to navigate crises and real examples of how organisations around the world are responding.
