Fit for the Future
Thriving, not just surviving, in an uncertain future

COVID-19 transformed our world – at home, at work, and in every other area of our lives. You might have heard people say, “We’re all in the same boat”, but that’s not true. We’re all in the same storm, but with different boats to navigate through that storm. It didn’t affect us all in the same way, and we don’t all have the same resources to deal with it.
We also face change and disruption from many other directions, such as artificial intelligence, new tech startups in the healthcare space, social media, climate change, new generations entering the workforce, more people working from home, and a focus on diversity and inclusion.
We need to navigate an uncertain and volatile future, and we all have the opportunity to shape that future. In this session, we look at the biggest changes in healthcare, learn practical tools for better decision-making, and develop the new skills you need to thrive in a fast-changing world.
