As we are beginning to look beyond the immediate impacts of the COVID-19 crisis on our lives, questions arise regarding how the fallout from the pandemic might change the world more permanently. Which behavioral changes have accelerated, will continue to endure, or perhaps revert back to previous norms before the pandemic hit? And how will long-term trends, already set in motion before the pandemic, such as aging populations, digital transformation, and climate change, interact with these short-term impacts?

By attending this webcast, viewers will be able to answer the following questions:

  • How will COVID-19 continue to impact where we work, how we consume, and what we produce?
  • How do long-term trends, such as demographics, technology, and environmental challenges, interact with these changes?
  • How will these trends impact our economic growth outlook for the global economy?
  • How can companies deal with these uncertainties and best prepare for what might be seismic changes in their business environments?
