A few weeks ago I wrote an article on LinkedIn called Why Corona Made Me Cry – and the response from the business community was heartening. The feedback gave me the encouragement I needed to reach out to business contacts to share experiences. Through this sharing, I gathered insights which I found motivating, inspiring and uplifting – exactly what I needed, and what I felt others might need too.
Somewhere Over The Rainbow was developed and produced by YOURgb in response to these kindnesses as a way to pay it forward – a platform for these insights to be shared with my wider business community. We created this online event for people in business, to explore what we can do NOW, to shine in the ‘new normal’.
I loved every second of this live event, and I am so grateful to our wonderful panel of speakers for giving us their time. It was a pleasure to work with them, and a joy to hear their thoughts and learn about their business approaches to this epidemic.
Within this article I will share the key learnings from our event, along with the link to watch the full and unedited recording of it.
“It was a positive exploration of actions we can all take in leadership, culture and business planning, in the wake of COVID-19.”
With the kind support of the Scottish Business Network we engaged with a panel of professionals with rich and diverse business experiences to share their feelings and advice on how to stop waiting, and start creating.
