In this engaging, interactive, and entertaining presentation, which updates the speaker's 2020 SGMP National Education Conference closing session, you as a government meeting planner will dramatically improve your adaptation and planning for COVID and the post-COVID recovery. The presentation will combine the most recent information on the state of COVID and its impact on the government meeting planning industry with cutting-edge neuroscience and behavioral economics-based strategies for dealing with COVID and the post-COVID recovery.

Research shows that our gut reaction is to adapt to and plan for best-case scenarios and to focus on short-term threats, instead of taking a realistic and long-term perspective on slow-moving, high-impact disasters such as the COVID pandemic. Fortunately, we can use neuroscience and behavioral economics-based strategies to navigate successfully the disruptions caused by the pandemic and plan for the post-pandemic recovery, and this presentation will give you the tools to do so.
 
Attendees will learn:

  • The current state of the COVID pandemic and the potential for post-COVID recovery scenarios
  • The neuroscience-based evidence for how government meeting planners tend to make poor choices in the face of slow-moving major disruptions like the pandemic, and how they can make better choices
  • Techniques for how government meeting planners have most successfully shifted their work to adapt to and plan effectively for the long-term impact of the pandemic
