COVID-19 has forced many Australian businesses to think of new business models, to pivot and make ‘on the fly’ decisions. More intensive digitation programs, transformation, more efficient decision making and shorter implementation timeframes could become the ‘new normal’. 


Samantha discusses what GRC may look like post the pandemic and what professionals in this space are thinking and doing, potential learnings and more importantly, how we could be adapting GRC management to accommodate the ‘new normal’.
