In light of the current global pandemic, the Northern Virginia Economic Development Alliance (NOVA EDA) is taking action. We are proud to announce the launch of a three-part, 12 session webinar series: “Beyond COVID-19: NOVA Business Resiliency Webinars.”

Created for NOVA businesses to ensure they have the latest and best possible information from a variety of experts, these webinars will focus on how to keep moving forward during and after the current global pandemic. It will convene experts spanning issues such as government financing, staffing, technology readiness, healthy workplaces, new business and revenue models, customer retention, and more.

The next in the series is IT: Making Your Business Resilient, on Thursday, August 6th.

Covid-19 has required massive changes to how companies operate. The scale of these changes has impacted staff, profitability, operational performance, IT systems and even questioned the survival of thousands of businesses.

How has the pandemic impacted decisions around investments in IT? Which investments are most important to ensure my business is resilient? Remote connectivity, compute power, cloud storage, security, shared documents, conference platforms, online client engagement, a new wave of high performing laptops and computers for remote workers. Which are the right investments, when? How do I evaluate the state of my system needs and put a plan in place in this new reality?

Topics include:

  • Defining IT needs during and after Covid-19
  • Quantifying the key areas for investment in IT
  • Identifying best practices
  • Developing a strategy to make the right investments for a strong return

Panelists include:

  • Mark Flynn, Research Leader, Global Comms & Media Research, Accenture
