By Mr. Amit Goyal/ 04-Nov-2020

About the episode

Covid has changed a lot of things around us - the way we study, the way we work, the way we eat, the way we travel, the way we socialize – pretty much everything

Most businesses were just not ready to embrace and adapt such change. Do you think the CXOs of budget airlines would have anticipated that their biggest threat would not be another airline, but a video conferencing app such as Zoom, Skype that takes away the business traveller market share?

The work has always changed.

In this podcast, we’ll learn about how to adapt ourselves with the changing business & technological environment and remain relevant for tomorrow.
