And lastly, thanks to you – our readers from over thirty countries around the world – for staying with us over the past 2-3 months and sending in your encouraging comments to the articles. Indeed, there are now more of you than ever – professionals, entrepreneurs, managers, instructors, students or folk with the same passion and hopes as ourselves.

In many countries, confinement or lockdown as it’s called, is beginning to be relaxed and as you return to something approaching normality, have a think about all the important lessons the crisis has taught us – some very positive for people and planet that we can keep, some negative and that have to be tweaked, improved, revamped or discarded entirely. Above all, take good care and safe keeping to yourselves and loved ones.

Kind regards,

Tom Gamble, Associate Director, Council on Business & Society
