in-cosmetics Asia Talks Flood Impact


BANGKOK—Andrew Durieux, a crisis management expert based in Thailand, will be delivering two exclusive free-to-attend presentations at in-cosmetics Asia—Dec. 14 to 16—where he will assess the impact of the recent flooding on the country. 

The organizers of in-cosmetics Asia decided to move the show to the new December dates as a result of the flooding that severely affected Thailand and its capital city, Bangkok, where the event will take place.

The first session, which will run between 10:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on the Dec. 16, is entitled ‘Impact of the flood on Thailand and the Thai cosmetic industry’, and will review the flooding in the region while analyzing the impact of the situation on the various cosmetics industry participants in Thailand.

In the second session—taking place on Dec. 16 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m., "How can the cosmetic industry players manage future floods and other natural disasters"—Andrew 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 minimize loss during similar situations in the future. 

Andrew, the founder and principle consultant of Coverage Ltd., commented: “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."
