Meredith Wilson shared the facts. What's happening around the globe? What can we expect? 

Barry Berman shared how to manage the incoming data. What's real, what's now and how to proceed? What are facts, and what is interpretation?

Kendall Clifton-Short shared how to progress through the emotional mine fields that we're facing, including working from home. How can we develop the cultural maturity to keep leaning forward? What shifts in leadership need to be made?
