Recovery and Resilience


As the storms of the global pandemic continue to buffet businesses and individuals, we are all in need of a double dose of resilience. If only there were a precise recipe for it, we would all be racing towards a brighter future. It is not so simple.

In the first event of our year-round CogXtra programme, we dig deep into what makes for true resilience, in order to leave you both thinking bigger, and taking away some practical advice. We will be joined by esteemed experts like George Osborne, Lord Billimoria and Kathryn Parsons who have shaped and directed business and economies, as well as new thinkers expanding the conversation about what is possible.
