We’re currently seeing massive devastation around the world to healthcare systems, employment, economies, and ultimately, lives. Now is not the time for business as usual. The unique times in which we live are testing humanity in ways which may only compare to the great wars of the last century. 

In a post-covid world, the foundations of society as we know them will go through a profound transformation. A change which at this point, can no longer be undone. The cat’s out of the bag. 

In these challenging times, we have a massive opportunity to emerge stronger from this crisis. We can choose a path for our future. It’s time we hit the RESET button.
