The New Post Pandemic Realities: Navigating Opportunities in Rebound Stages

About the event

COVID-19 has caused significant disruptions in the business environment. Now, with anti-COVID vaccines getting rolled out, and the world starting to move to a post-pandemic stage, organisations are experimenting with multiple strategies to stay ahead of the curve.

Frost & Sullivan has observed three winning strategies for a robust rebound pipeline:

  • Staying true to vision and strategy
  • Safeguarding brand equity and dynamic capturing of emerging customer needs
  • Utilising technology and adapting the business model to generate opportunities from disrupted value propositions


While various industries have been impacted differently by the pandemic, and each has its varied recovery curves, Frost & Sullivan sees multiple opportunities emerging in the changing economic environment across sectors.

Our webinar with Sarwant Singh, Managing Partner and Regional Leader addressed some of the key questions that the industry has today:

  • What is the global and regional economic outlook?
  • What are the emerging opportunities across sectors such as: Energy, Food & Beverage, ICT, Mobility, FMCG, Healthcare, Chemicals. How can you benefit from them?
  • How does one take advantage of new technology and differentiated business to support post-pandemic growth?
  • Will the sunshine industries of 2020 like Video conferencing continue to shine in 2021 and post COVID?
  • What growth strategies you could adopt to stay ahead of the curve?
