The COVID-19 pandemic has been accelerating the digital revolution and is creating an earlier-than-expected tipping point that is likely to transform businesses forever.

She examines which uniquely human qualities can be used to secure our professional future, and which assets you really should embed in your organization's DNA if you want to ensure your viability in this disruptive world.
An inspiring presentation for organizations that already have both feet firmly planted in the future and want to use this pandemic as a transformational momentum.
