Upstate Leaders Focus on the Future
Regardless of the sector or location, 2020 was a challenging year for all Upstate entities. As we move into a new year, an uncertain future remains. To help us to better understand some of the ongoing challenges from the pandemic and resulting economic crisis, we have compiled a group of local, regional and state business, government and non-profit leaders who will periodically share their insights on a variety of topics and community issues. By sharing their struggles, successes and continued efforts they will help all Upstate entities better understand and navigate this uncertain future.

Check out the list of Upstate Leaders who are FOCUSED on the FUTURE.

The first set of questions posed to the group looked back at how the pandemic impacted them personally as well as their organizations/businesses. They also provided some insights into what changes to their business and sector could be here to stay.

Here are links to read Part 1 and Part 2.

The next set of questions, which looks specifically at 2021, will be included in the UpstateVibe e-newsletter coming out later this month.
Have Time for a Chat?
