Grey Swan Guild
The Grey Swan Guild is a global network of 1000+ members from over 55 countries, with a common desire to "make sense of the world's biggest challenges". We came together in response to the first shocks felt during the COVID-19 pandemic, to discuss the impact of the crisis and the road ahead for people, business and society.
Through this process we documented more than 100 candid perspectives from our members across professional domains, geographies and demographics. In sharing these perspectives we hope to stimulate wider conversations and move the dial on our ultimate goal: to make sense of the current pandemic, and more importantly, future Grey Swans.
Lifting the Veil on Post-Pandemic Problems
We gathered for an in-depth sensemaking discussion on the pandemic & post-pandemic. Our expert panel futurist Alexandra Whittington, strategist Rob Salkowitz, connector Servane Mouazan & innovator++ Sean Moffitt tear though & help unravel 12 questions we likely all have on our minds with EVIDENCE: - level of optimism as the year closes out, - the biggest lasting problems & challenges, - overlooked short & long term problems, - damage to relationships, - new pandemic lexicon & what they mean, - beliefs holding firm and shaken, - pandemic paradoxes, - when is the new normal (when will we know it's here, what will influence it & what do we call it) and - hope for the future.
