Without question, COVID-19 has upset how we work, travel, and live. Like the number of people who are now able to have meaningful work from, well, wherever? In this webinar, we will dig into how trends set in motion by the pandemic are impacting economic development and discuss what you should be doing to respond to them.
During this hour together we will hear from two panellists and have the opportunity to dive deeper into the topic through two breakout sessions. Expect to meet some new people, enjoy a good discussion, learn something new and hopefully be inspired. All in an hour!
