This past week, we held an unprecedented town hall style event featuring two dozen of the Capital Region’s leader in business, politics and non-profits. Over 400 people registered to attend and listen in on an insightful conversation about how these individuals are navigating the COVID-19 crisis within their organizations and industries, as well as to hear how they are still filled with hope for brighter days ahead.
Thank you to all who participated and joined us! And for those who missed it, please feel free to watch the event below on YouTube.
