When every day seems to bring more disruption, it’s hard to know where to focus. The more things change, the less likely it seems that we’ll ever get back to business as usual. Is there a reason for optimism right now? No one really knows. But we do know that the people and companies who will be more resilient and emerge from this chaos to be stronger than before will be the ones who can keep a strategic eye focused on tomorrow instead of just reacting for today. In this candid session, bestselling author and storyteller Rohit Bhargava will share how you can use the principles of non-obvious thinking to see opportunities others don’t, be more resilient and prepare for an uncertain future, no matter what comes next.
