As I sit here at my desk, so many words and thoughts are going through my head. Words such as uncertain, challenging, social distancing and home school. Initially these thoughts were also accompanied by the notion that perhaps some greater power is forcing the world to reset and slow down. Although, admittedly, as announcements of layoffs and closures have begun to fl ood my inbox, that has become harder to cling to. If only we had a crystal ball to show us the future. Perhaps we don't need one. What if we, as an industry, chose to create what our future looks like. Yes, no question this is an uncertain time and many things are out of our control, but we know this will be a distant memory at some point. If we take action and work together, when this has passed we will already be working towards rebuilding the vibrant industry that we all love and that is such a key driver in the global economy. What that looks like... I don't know, but together we are stronger and more powerful, so let's share ideas that we can start implementing now to ensure that when this turns the corner we can be well on our way with our recovery. You are reading a special digital ad-free mini edition dedicated to providing relevant content in challenging times with the intention of keeping the conversation going and supporting one another as we build our new future together.
