Message from the IPRA President: Getting ready for the Day After   April 2020

With a great sense of relief we see covid-19 slowing down its deadly global dance as countries are getting ready to return to normal. However, in the after-covid-19 world, normal will mean a new normal which we are yet to create together. A new normal for us, for our clients, for our industry and our communities. What  does a new normal look like? The pandemic has outlined three key lessons that, I believe, will help us build this new normal.

Message from the IPRA President: Getting comfortable with the uncomfortable   March 2020

I hope my message finds you and your loved ones in good health! Covid-19 has shocked our lives in all possible ways. We think twice before shaking hands with a stranger and our homes have become simultaneously an office, a boardroom, a school, a gym, a park, and a stage.  Because the world is now globally connected the virus has spread globally in just a few months. And along with that spread is another. That is an infection around the world of fake news, fake cures, fear and panic. In addition many IPRA colleagues across the world report that the virus threat has triggered laws and measures that would otherwise take years of discussions before becoming a norm. Some of these measures are vital to protect our health now, others will have the potential to impact our lives far beyond the current crisis.

Message from the IPRA President: A Toast to the New Decade January 2020

On the 31st of December we changed a nine to a zero and thus began a new decade. A beginning marked with tumult around the world. We have been watching the consequences of climate change as the forests of Australia burn, we are worrying about missiles flying in the Middle East, we are reading the next chapter in the long Book of Brexit, and we are feeling nervous as the Russian government steps down in the year of the next US Presidential election. If this has made you think that we are beginning a decade of turbulence, think again!
