Risk Series Webinar | How to be Resilient in the "New Normal" 

Tuesday, October 4 | 12 - 1:30 p.m. via Zoom

The last several years have reshaped many aspects of our life - the way we do business, the amount of time we spend at home and countless other areas of our professional and personal lives. Society as a whole, businesses and individuals have learned to adapt to changes brought on by the pandemic and have established new normals, some of which have proven to be even more effective than they were in a pre-pandemic world. During this session, we will define what resiliency means today and discuss how businesses and individuals have grown to be more resilient to unexpected situations and difficulties.
