COVID-19 is not a short-term event that we can simply endure — it will result in long-term changes to how we work and how business is conducted. That means it’s necessary for each of us to rethink the fundamentals of our businesses. What we do. How we see ourselves. What needs to change.

In this call, Eric Deschamps and Rob Dale help you focus on the key issues you need to be addressing and also sharing valuable resources and methodologies that you can use to prepare for a post-COVID-19 world.
