I’m also working hard to accelerate the checklist of services that I’m able to offer up from my home broadcast studio. I know that future disruptive trends are often the last thing on the minds of leaders today – right now, survival strategies matter – but at some time, people are going to be seeking fresh insight, and I’ll be ready to go when they are.
