Through stories of his upbringing, his family life, and his local community, Paul and Shane reflect on:
- The effects of the COVID-19 crisis on businesses in the near, medium, and long-term future
- How the crisis is impacting different locations, industries, businesses, and people in different ways
- Striking the right balance between fighting COVID-19, managing the economy, and avoiding government overreach
- How we transition parts of our economy and create opportunities for industries and business going forward
- Optimistic advice for businesses that are currently being impacted by COVID-19
“What do I think is going to change? What’s going to change is that it will become increasingly more important, if we’re not marketing, communicating, and meeting in the same ways, is that we understand the process of delivering quality, transparency, education and that builds to a trusting relationship. Operating with integrity is the foundation of trust.
Whether in business or in life, be educational, focus on relationships, and be adaptable to new situations. The transactions will come if you’re thinking about trust and building relationships first.” – Paul Corcoran
