My head is exploding with information gathered to help clients move forward with meetings. It all changes daily, sometimes hourly, and a life-long learner, I too seek out more. Thus, this month's Friday with Joan where I rely on others to help us all think through what we do today, tomorrow, and in the coming months and years. We can no longer operate as we always have. It is not post-9/11 or even post-early 2000 recession. It's time for a reboot of how we always met.

COVID-19: Trust, Information, Solidarity and Change

COVID-19: Trust, Information, Solidarity and Change

Some topics about which I write are easy and joyful. Last month’s praise of CSMs/Event Managers was pure joy. Even writing about the option for sabbaticals was interesting research and those now on “forced sabbaticals” (aka furloughs) may find ideas to use. I’ve delayed writing this blog as long as possible. My notes from WHO press briefings and articles and emails fill pages. By the time you read this, the information that changes hourly on who is impacted, where #COVID19 has reached new levels, and what is being done to protect healthcare providers, emergency responders and the public will have changed dramatically. I updated the blog draft on Monday, 30 March, after the governor of Virginia, issued a Stay at Home Order until June 10. Maryland and Washington, D.C., are doing similarly.
