*this will be a fully-virtual event

As the year 2021 developed, we all went through various cycles of uncertainty, instability, doubt, and indecisiveness, longing for the comfort of what is known and proven, trying to keep a sense of normality in our lives. In a world in turmoil, we all have had to carry on working, taking up new challenges, searching for new tools to help our daily lives, striving to make ends meet, while staying safe and unharmed. Two years well into the pandemic - what have we lost and what have we gained in our business world? 

Recent reports indicate that major shifts are brewing in the way we work. The future of work is a vivid theme, with the rise of a new normal that will soon be a reality. How did this year affect the workplace? What could have been done better? How might we have been better prepared? These questions should eventually be answered to shed light on opportunities and steps forward that can make the workplace better - and actually help us, humans, like any other great catastrophe in our history has: to be a catalyst for new mindsets, new ideas, and innovation.
