The impact of the Covid on the three lines
The COVID-19 global health crisis has had an unprecedented impact on business and society across the globe.

ecoDa, FERMA and ECIIA have carried out extensive international surveys to find out the impact of the Covid crisis on their respective professions and to help them navigate the challenges.

If this true that the pandemic has accelerated growing attention on ESG, sustainability and stakeholder value issues, it is also true that the robustness of the governance mechanisms has clearly appeared as an essential element for the resilience of companies.

The April 19 webinar will look at the changes taking place for the three professions, but also how they will need to work together more effectively. Successfully managing challenges requires definitely a new way of thinking about risks.

Our panelists:
- Leena Linnainmaa, ecoDa’s incoming chair, Secretary General of Directors’ Institute Finland;
- Dirk Wegener, FERMA President
- Nora Gürtler, Head of Group Audit of Assicurazioni Generali S.p.A. and member of ECIIA Insurance Committee

Our moderator:
-Barton Edgerton, Associate Director, Research at NACD (National Association of Corporate Directors in the US)
