Coffee Chat #14: Business Relationships in COVID Times

How have you kept your co-worker, vendor, partner, and customer relationships going during all the turmoil and unusual circumstances we have been living and working under since March 2020? 
Are there different solutions for different relationships? What has been working and what has not? What have you noticed that you don’t do now that you would do in the past? How are you looking at the future? Are you waiting to plan or planning to wait? Who will be attending events in person and what are the alternatives?
Join us to discuss what you see as permanent changes and positive things that have come out of the COVID impact. Katrina Paglierani, VP of Partnerships & Alliances at Modulus Data will guide our discussion.
