The Future of Events
July 08 2020
With a global pandemic that took over everyone's lives by a storm, social gathering measures changed the landscape of the event industry.
Many had to drastically pivot to online solutions to try to replicate the essence of their event. Recreating the experience received at events to online is no easy task. With life resuming and social distancing regulations loosening, there might still be hope of producing an in-person gathering sooner than anticipated; however what will these events look like?

While the entire nation goes into lockdown, many photographers have lost their practice as they were no longer to get close to their models to do a shoot.

In this episode, we meet with both photographer Vic Vonapartis and fashion model Becky Scott to get an inside look of how they staged a full photoshoot by still keeping a very safe distance? What can we learn from this that can be used for later international photoshoots as well.

How does the human nervous system work?
APR 08 2020
In a world where everything seems like upside down, we do the best we can within our ability to better the situations and move forward.
Once Covid-19 started affecting our lives, we've observed various reactions from people. Many started feeling guilt. The guilt for not continuing working on their projects/business, the guilt of not producing content, the guilt to shutting off and focusing on themselves.
Many videos & social media posts started popping up pressuring people to pivot their mindset, to continue pushing their business, to continue pumping content. And at some extent, these content were produced with good intentions to helping people strive in difficult moments. When faced with trauma, people's actions won't always be reflected as good.
We talk to Pamela Bakalian from Leaders Who Celebrate to understand the paths trauma can impede on someone. Why some people are in denial of this pandemic. How does the human nervous system work?
