There’s no doubt that 2020 has been a challenging year full of unprecedented hurdles. With the devastating health impact brought on by COVID-19 to the lingering effects on the global economy, we have all learned that adaptation and resilience are key.

To help inspire and thrive in our post-pandemic world SafetyCulture and EdApp are hosting a completely free summit happening on November 19 and 20, 2020. The Summit will focus on the shift from surviving to thriving as we approach 2021.

Hosted by David Brown, podcast host and the journalist behind “Business Wars” and “Business Wars Daily”, the virtual event will include a collection of leaders and innovators who are proven masters of adaptation.
