10:30            Welcome Featured Talks

10:40-11:00  Managing the Sales Force through the Unexpected Exogenous COVID-19 Crisis

Dr. Nathaniel Hartmann

Dr. Hartmann proposes a framework to help sales force leaders better understand the complicated, immediate, wide-ranging, and severe impact of COVID-19 on the sales force, as well as potential responses. Findings from a review of 35+ practitioner-oriented articles and 8 interviews with sales force leaders are used to validate the framework and share how COVID-19 is impacting sales forces and how sales forces are responding to COVID-19. Considerations regarding managing through uncertainty, long-term consequences, and turning challenges into opportunities are discussed.  


11:00-11:20    What’s in it for Vietnam: Playing the Offensive-Defensive Game

Dr. Tung Bui

As Vietnam is being praised worldwide for its success in keeping the Coronavirus at bay, it has the unique opportunity to recover faster from the economic downturn than the majority of the world’s economies. However, Vietnam’s recovery deeply depends on its ability to expand its domestic trade and find a new approach to do business with major economic partners that are currently severely handicapped by the pandemic. This talk advances a number of economic and business strategies to deal with these unprecedented challenges.
