In-Cosmetics Asia - How to turn a crisis into opportunity?

Andrew Durieux

In the context of the flooding that severely affected Thailand and the Bangkok area, the organisers of In-Cosmetics Asia, who were forced to reschedule the event, have invited Andrew Durieux, a crisis management expert based in Thailand, to deliver two free to attend presentations focusing on how to turn a crisis into an opportunity.

The first session, which will run between 10:30 and 11:00am on the 16 December, is entitled ‘Impact of the flood on Thailand and the Thai cosmetic industry’, and will review the flooding in the region whilst analysing the impact of the situation on the various cosmetics industry participants in Thailand.

In the second session, which will take place later the same day between 11:30 and 12:45, ‘How can the cosmetic industry players manage future floods and other natural disasters’, Andrew Durieux will provide participants with information on how companies recover from the flooding. He will also focus on the implications to supply chains and provide insight into how to minimise loss during similar situations in the future.

Thailand copes exceptionally well with flooding but three significant typhoons in quick succession produced a totally unmanageable amount of water, resulting in thousands of factories now being submerged and out of commission. During my session at In-Cosmetics Asia, I’ll be examining the importance of planning and flexibility in the recovery process, as well as advising businesses on the best strategies and tactics to employ during times of crisis. My aim is to illustrate to owners and managers exactly how opportunities can be created, as the companies who recover the quickest will inevitably be the first to win business once things are returned to normal,” commented Andrew Durieux, founder and Principle Consultant of Coverage Ltd, a Thai company that prepares businesses to overcome bad events by providing them with testing, training and continuity planning.

In-Cosmetics Asia will be held from 14 to 16 December 2011 at the Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre (BITEC) in Bangkok, Thailand.
