About this event

THE EVENT

Never before did investors, founders, entrepreneurs, and leaders of even the smallest companies think that having a 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 if we look closely, we might be able to find the silver linings that are around every cloud as we work to emerge from this pandemic stronger.
