Cindy and Mary’s talks in the 'Change' session from Society Street virtual (www.society.st/virtual) was one many of our attendees found inspiring: it came at a time when many were floundering.

Their session gave both reassurance and hope. We wanted to revisit some of the themes we covered in March, and ask Cindy and Mary to review where we are six months on.
  • How has COVID-19 developed our thinking?
  • How are we adapting to the changes, and what skills do we need to develop to bring value to our organizations safely through the turbulent times ahead?
  • What has been surprising about the last six months, and what opportunities do we see for the future?
