12:30 Luncheon

“The current economic crisis is calling into question business model fundamentals and putting all companies under stress. Volatility and uncertainty are the foremost characteristics of the new world economy and may well be for quite a while to come. Yet, experience of previous recessions shows that there will be companies that continue to prosper. Ernst & Young is committed to understanding how companies are reacting to the current crisis. Working with the Economics Intelligence Unit, Ernst & Young has conducted a comprehensive study of leading companies around the world to create insight for companies in these difficult times. There is opportunity in the adversity of the worst of markets.”
