Amid escalating headlines around current the pandemic, a Covid-19 culture is emerging spontaneously and creatively to deal with public fear, restrictions on daily routine and the isolation of quarantine. Though, the unprecedented impact of the pandemic will fundamentally alter the business landscape and the ‘resilient’ term has gone from being just a concept to a vital consideration for professionals seeking to recover from the current crisis. This year’s opening keynote has therefore taken a turn and will offer inspirational talks that will give the audience an opportunity to understand the importance of transition and find their feet in a changing world.
