The world needs to learn profound lessons from Covid; how we develop more proactive cultures, professionally and personally, how we build resilience, the ability to self-lead, to control change and to ensure a sense of proactive rather than reactive action. Richard Gerver has been at the forefront of this thinking for nearly twenty years. His expertise and lived experiences have never been more resonant.
