Let’s have a GameDay!

A few weeks ago, I was given the opportunity to participate in a GameDay on a client engagement.

And on top of the environmental disaster and the health crisis, societal tensions have come to the fore through the Black Lives Matter movement. The commentators are quick to rightfully remind us that none of these events are isolated, but rather are symptomatic of what our world has become. A world we have created.
