The webinar discussion had the title: “How do we properly manage our working and living situation after Covid 19”. The webinar count 22 participants from different countries and had a fruitful exchange in terms of their experiences and how to deal with the “new normality”. The audience enjoyed the almost 2 hours webinar and gave a huge thank you to Mercedes and the organizers.


Especially the questions “Who you are?”, “What's under YOUR control?”, and “What do you want to happen?” emphasized and guided the audience. It was a pleasure to share the thoughts.
