Emerging stronger, vol. 4: Does it really take a pandemic for us to accelerate innovation?
Recessions and game changing events – such as pandemics – can change the trajectory of economies, governments and businesses, and essentially alter the course of history. Since the outbreak of Covid-19, societies and businesses have had to dramatically alter the way they operate, compromising work environments and posing challenges to the status quo. We have seen unprecedented adaption and development of new technological solutions, fundamentally changing the game. But does it really take a global crisis, such as the current pandemic, to accelerate innovation at this speed? Will it keep changing as we settle into a new reality, and the world slowly opens up again, or will we slow down? What is next in innovation, and how we do keep accelerating? Simply, how do we emerge stronger?
Welcome to our fourth event in the “Emerging stronger” series, featuring business leaders and opinion-makers from both sides of the North Sea.
The discussions are moderated by Nik Gowing, Director and Founder of Thinking the Unthinkable and former BBC news anchor.
