About this event

THE EVENT

Never before did founders, entrepreneurs, and leaders of even the smallest companies need to think that their command of and understanding of:

epidemiology
economics
public policy
public health
history
psychology
sociology
financial markets
science
technology
language
engineering
mathematics

and more!

... and tracking where they all intersect from moment to moment would ever be so important to how they, their family, their team, their firm survives just the next couple days... and the next couple weeks... and the next couple months, let alone plan for next year.

The fact is that most entrepreneurs today didn’t have to lead through the great recession, they weren’t CEOs during the dot com bubble, they likely didn’t study the economic impacts of the World War I and Spanish Flu one-two punch on the global economy.

How are they to be expected to do anything but follow their guts or the reactionary examples of their peers?

The pandemic has been and will continue to be the great global leveler.

As leaders, entrepreneurs, and business leaders we should be informed, rational, analytical and rigorous in our thinking.

No one has a crystal ball, but the markets operate virtually 24 hours, and across the globe. As markets open and close, and as their outcomes across all asset classes inform the decisions of every entrepreneur on the ground, we can at least see around the bend and do our very best to make the best decisions we can for our businesses, teams, and families.
