Peter and Dan discuss the record-breaking speed of technological change and why the pandemic has accelerated rates of innovation. They also showcase the critical importance of honing your mindset during this time, as the pandemic continues to shape our industries, requiring us to adapt.
In this episode:
- Peter shares one of his biggest lessons learned over the past year: to “never let a good crisis go to waste.” He explains why now is the most opportune moment to make changes in your organization, to internalize that we are not returning to “normal,” but must rather propel our businesses towards a future of new paradigms and novel markets.
- Dan talks about the concept of being a hero to others during times of crisis, explaining why entrepreneurs naturally think this way, and why such an instinct is more relevant than ever.
- Peter emphasizes the increased velocity of communications and deal-making in a business world of virtual meetings, decimating the time previously needed to fly and meet face-to-face. Dan further highlights the value of virtual events and environments to help more people and collaborate more quickly on ideas.
