The CA Summit 2022: Learn chapter speaker list
Learn: Tuesday 4 October, 1-2.30pm BST
The Learn chapter of the CA Summit was sponsored by Croner-i
What have we learnt from the pandemic?
The first day of the CA Summit brought together thought leaders and industry experts to share, explore and discuss the changes we have all experienced over the past two and a half years. What have we learnt from such a volatile time – about our society, our planet, our values and purpose and priorities and ourselves? As the dust settles, and we start to get used to a new way of living, how have we changed?
We considered the macro factors that have been accelerated by the pandemic – from economic trends and digital transformation to the quest for net zero – and we discuss how the role of the CA has changed fundamentally as a response to the shifting landscape.
This was a thought provoking, informative and contemplative session.
Below you will find information on the speakers for this chapter.
