Investing in learning is more important than ever today

“Today more than ever we live uncertain times, complicated moments … but we must bear in mind that more than thinking about challenges, we must think about opportunities. In this fourth Industrial revolution, in this post-covid era, numerous opportunities will be generated, related to digitalization, people (especially during the succession and generational transition), the Business Model to save economic and financial crises, including the aspect of internationalization, innovation, specifically the fourth industrial revolution and the reason for being or purpose, the values, the role of the company in society and the values of property and all stakeholders. The opportunities are there, this kind of reflection forums helps us to see them more clearly. Look for those opportunities, do it generously and surely there is a future for everyone.”
