December 2020: Let’s Talk Resilience



Thanks to you, our tribe, 2020 was an amazing year with 25+ knowledge sharing transform this events. We are wrapping up December with an entrepreneurial theme.



2020 Highlights

Hard to believe that 2020 is almost over . ‘transform this’ was officially founded in July to bring practical transformation to you. Since then, we have hosted 25+ highly interactive discussions, with 11 speakers.


Guest Speakers: My sincere thanks to the guest speakers who volunteered their time and expertise towards these efforts. Their commitment and work ethic was unparalleled towards seamless delivery of each presentation. We are continuing conversations towards 2021 discussion topics. In the meantime, you can catch all the replays on this medium publication and on our website, under past events.


Transformation & Resiliency Framework: A special thanks to Chris, who combined my framework and the principles of design thinking together towards this infographic. Chris’ guest blog post talks about business transformations and various aspects that bring success at an enterprise level, no matter the industry.



Our Tribe: A special thanks to our tribe for joining the live knowledge shares. It made conversations extremely interesting to continuously build upon case studies discussed in the previous sessions.

Garry, Chris, Alex and Jiri are our MVPs. I appreciated conversations with them, both during the sessions and offline. I especially appreciated the various perspectives they continue to share with others in the tribe.



Knowledge Share Videos: Before we took the live stage for interactive sessions, we recorded and shared offline videos with transformation and business resilience SMEs. Link to the videos
