DAY 59 - The Final Episode of the COVID-19 Daily Podcast with Dave Trafford
This is DAY 59 of the COVID-19 pandemic. Here’s what you need to know on Friday, May 8, 2020 <<<<>>> We are winding down the COVID-19 Daily Podcast as of tomorrow, Friday, May 8th. But, we are going away. We’re going to shift direction. These past seven weeks have been spent focused on the Outbreak of the coronavirus that brought us the COVID-19 pandemic and brought the world to its knees. Now, as we begin to stand back up again, the over arching question has been “what’s next”? What’s next for business, for jobs, for education, for families and our health and well being? How will be live in this age of the COVID pandemic? So, beginning Monday, May 11 we begin THE NEXT NORMAL. It will be 2 full months since the pandemic was declared and nearly four months since we saw our first case of the coronavirus in Canada on January 27th. We will run three episodes a week – We’ll post them first thing in the morning on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. And we’ll take a 100 thousand foot view of what’s on the horizon, what we should expect and how we will prepare for the next wave of this pandemic. You need go nowhere. If you subscribe to the OUTBREAK Daily podcast, you’ll find THE NEXT NORMAL in the same podcast feed. We’ve had nearly 170 thousand downloads since this show started 7 weeks ago, so we know there’s an appetite and demand for this on demand audio. Thanks for listening, and thanks for the support… <<>> In this final episode of the COVID-19 Daily Podcast we will talk to Bob Pickard at Signal Communications about the evolving narrative around leadership in this age and stage of COVID. And we’ll also be joined by Jon Erlichman, host of The Open on BNN Bloomberg about today’s job loss announcement. Nearly 2 million Canadians lost their jobs in April. <<<>>> IF YOU HAVE A STORY ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCE YOU WANT TO SHARE…send me an email.
