Welcome!

The Covid-19 pandemic has had an unprecedented impact not just on public health, but also on education and businesses. While it’s important to focus on near-term survival, it is also vital to think about how businesses will operate once the pandemic subsides. Over the past few months, leaders across the world have found new ways to engage and inspire their teams and learned lessons that will outlast the current situation. Join us as we revisit some of these lessons and find common ground between India and Africa. 

Hear perspectives from a select panel of leaders on how to train and manage teams effectively.
