“How to Pivot When Your Entire Business Model is Wiped Out.” - Audrey Verhaeghe

COVID 19 became a pivotal force for us all. Entrepreneurs need to pivot, create, change and survive and then thrive. The SA Innovation Summit decided to support this community by calling in on various founders to share their knowledge and real life experience in these times. We want to support entrepreneurs and those that support entrepreneurs as they hold so many people in the economy. That the entrepreneurs must survive and thrive is of utmost importance. Our expert entrepreneurs and founders will share practical tips and ideas on how to adapt in your business to succeed beyond the current challenges entrepreneurs face.”

Our first session was with Founder Audrey Verhaeghe discussing “How to pivot, when your entire business model is wiped out.”

In this session Audrey shared the SAIS story and what is being done in the COVID 19 lock down on the events industry. How we have pivoted as a company implementing a work from home policy and considering moving into digital events. Some inspiration to other founders was given on how to support their team during this journey.

Some good tips one needs during this time is how to handle stress, change and strive. How they approach it financially, mentally and psychologically.
