No charge


Turns out that the 2008-2010 global financial crisis was not the worst one we would live in our lifetimes. Back then, we had to face tough situations and unexpected risks, make difficult decisions, plan and even execute dismissals, deal with cash flow balance issues, balance our stress and personal/family lives, etc.

Wouldn’t it be good to be able to apply today what others learned back then?

Join us on May 11th 4:30-6pm for a once in a life time experience.

A few selected EO Boston members that were entrepreneurs back in 2008-2010, will be sharing experiences from some of their most critical and full of learnings moments of the global financial crisis.

You will get inspiration and valuable lessons to come back stronger from the current times.

Some experience shares you will hear about…
• Checking my Ego at the Door: How I shifted from running a large business that was losing millions of dollars to running one that was much smaller, but very profitable
• Counting on your team: The unexpected outcome of a dismissal conversation with all my employees.
• Inside the belly of the vampire squid: How I helped Goldman Sachs avoid bankruptcy during the 2008 Financial Crisis — and how that experience is helping me through the 2020 Covid Crisis
• Can it be called a joystick when it’s stuck? – Managing stress during a financial downturn when you don’t know your dive recovery point.
• I, Ostrich
• I Want You To Want Me

Join us on May 11th at 4:30pm and get better prepared for what we are facing now! This event is open to all EO members, no guests allowed.
