“A crisis gives you an opportunity to see things differently. My hunch is that many organizations will be changing their philosophy and engagement as a result of being forced to see things differently and see new opportunities to serve the community. I think we’ll see a lot of innovation. There’s what’s going to be exciting: seeing how we build back up.”
