Hope you and your families are all safe and well. The NYC area has made tremendous progress, and life is slowly returning to a new normal that we’re all figuring out together. As part of that new normal, we recently hosted our first, and hopefully last, Zoom Annual Meeting, and let’s just own it. It was weird. A tactical tip…to limit variables, we actually recorded our presentation the day before and did a live intro, three Q&A sessions, and a conclusion. We also had several CEO’s do 10 minute recorded presentations. There were a few glitches, but all in all, it went well, and we got a lot of good feedback.
As we all move forward, it sometimes helps to leverage classical thinkers. This quote from Socrates feels spot on right now.
“The secret to change is to focus all your energy, not fighting the old, but building the new.” – Socrates

The panel covered insights on building an effective board relationship, managing through challenging times, and pitfalls to avoid.
