Better by Design: Insights on Demand – Collectively Creating the Post-COVID Future

Hero image

As organizations continue to adapt and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, understanding its impacts is critical to mapping the path forward as a business, industry, and broader society. Virtually bringing together our global clients, colleagues, and subject matter experts, including those from Guy Carpenter, the recent Marsh McLennan Better By Design conference provided a platform for discussion on shaping the post-COVID world.

Throughout the week, participants drilled down on current challenges and identified opportunities to apply lessons learned to better plan, prepare, and protect against evolving and emerging risks. While the session content varied, one common theme remained consistent – resiliency. We invite you to explore these insights on demand for practical steps, strategies, and solutions to build resiliency – and promote possibilities.
