FEA – Community Call: Reflections 2020 – The good, the bad and the surprising
December 17 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST
By the date of this call it will have been nine months since our lives changed, dramatically and irrevocably. It is becoming harder to remember life before COVID-19 or even what day of the week it is, as one day blends into the next. We have all had to adapt and change personally and professionally. And we have helped our clients do the same.
When we reflect on this year it will be a year that we will remember, perhaps more than any other, a year that we will tell stories about, how we succeeded, how we were challenged, who we helped and who helped us, and what was surprising. What have we learned about ourselves, our work, our clients that we can share with our FEA colleagues as we look toward 2021.
Join hosts Shauna Feth and Russel Baskin in this open, facilitated discussion and conversation.
