Topic: Exploring the Personal side of Production & the Pandemic: Past, Present & Future... 
 
At the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic we were unsure of what was happening much less how long the “lockdown" would last, much less how it would eventually effect our day to day life both personally  and professionally. So with the help of a CCO or CEO and a Senior Agency Producer  if possible, I want to explore how  the pandemic effected our industry leaders. How we dealt with having to be in a lockdown on a personal front. Professionally how did  we as leaders deal with the fact that we had to let go of some of our staff, leave our offices, be at home…what is the GOOD, BAD AND THE SILVER LINING of the pandemic…..past, present & future…
