Inclusion on the board agenda
Boards can learn from Greg Clarke's resignation from the FA and ask themselves whether inclusion and antiracism are truly on their organisational agenda.
Risk communication and public health
If we take a cue from HIV/ AIDS, and learn to live with Covid19, the practice of prevention and regular testing could help us rebuild our economies and societies.
Friendship and decisions
In trying times, friends matter; the right friends matter even more. The pandemic is forcing a rethink.
Our ways of seeing
The experience of this pandemic has made explicit our ways of seeing. It can inform what and how we need to learn so we can cope with the next complex challenges life may bring us.
New kid on the block
Much is made of diversity as a source of better thinking on boards. Not enough is made of the value of a new kid on the block.
BLM in the Boardroom
Boards, that do not have a sophisticated understanding of slavery legacy and anti-racism, are at a disadvantage.

In shaping the post-Covid world, experience may be less relevant than resilience, creativity, empathy, perspective, and the ability to connect dots.
Being boring and risk
Unless a miracle cure for Covid19 emerges, we are going to have to learn to avoid superspreaders, and to avoid becoming superspreaders.
Simplify, don't oversimplify
We are framing Covid19 too simplistically, just as we did obesity, and hoping for a silver bullet -- a cure, a vaccine. Just like obesity this may be a losing battle.
A perspective on grass
Sometimes advice is not about helping solve a dilemma but enabling better sharpening of the way we are framing the problem.
