Mysuru, September 23:- Columbia Asia Hospital, Mysuru in association with Edin Synergy Global jointly organised an online session on the current situation of the pandemic and its effect on business and the way forward through a digital platform on Tuesday (September 22) here. The topic focused on ‘Covid-19 – New paradigms and realities.’

The session addressed issues like how to manage a business, logistics, staffing, and survival, in alignment with the current situation of the pandemic.

Col Rahul Tewari, general manager, Columbia Asia Hospital, Mysuru, who had earlier served as a Commanding Officer of a 1,200 soldier strong regiment in the Indian Army and had commanded a multi-nation United Nations peacekeeping force in Sudan spoke on the topic.

Col Tewari said “The pandemic affected the manufacturing and the service sector – hospitality, tours and travels, healthcare, retail banks, hotels, real estate, education, health, IT, recreation, media and others. It has literally bought our social and economic life to a standstill. While COVID-19 has undeniably altered the economic landscape; the Indian businesses have shown resilience in the face of adversity. Businesses will have to make varying degrees of adjustments to adapt to this altered landscape which will be the new normal for the foreseeable future. The economic impact of Covid-19 pandemic in India has been largely disruptive.”

“We all must adapt to the new normal and be strong. I am glad to address this issue through a digital platform to young and experienced people,” added Col Tewari.

The moderator of the session was Hemalatha, mentor and consultant of Edin Synergy. The session was attended by more than 90 entrepreneurs, business leaders, CEOs, CHROs, HR professionals, doctors, academicians, and other professionals.
