• Event: The Good Trade Summit

  • Location: virtual
  • Type: 2 day virtual summit with 4 panel discussions (approx. 75 min each) and video statements

4 Panels over 2 days with so many important voices and messages from inspiring leaders and experts.

My key take-aways:

🔑 NOW is the time for a complete transformation, from a broken economic system to a sustainable and inclusive one.

🔑 COVID-19 crisis is an immense opportunity to build FORWARD better.

🔑 Doing good actually means better business as well.

🔑 The changes needed are not hard, but we need the will to do it.

🔑 We need “all hands on deck”. So, USE YOUR VOICE – or your pen for that matter.
