Power of the unpredictable… Just a few weeks ago, with the decline in the pandemic’s impact, we were looking to the year 2022 with a note of reasonable optimism. With the war in Ukraine, the black swan chain sequence at work since 2019 makes adapting to uncertainty the only possible course of action for our organizations. Planning and stability are to be put away.
For the business travel professions, the pandemic crisis had already caused an acceleration of the seeds of change towards greater agility, technological innovation and consolidation. We must pursue this path with determination. The context we live in requires ever more shared reflexivity, perspective, ability to anticipate and solidarity. It is for this reason that CDS Groupe, in partnership with IFTM Top Resa, wished to host in 2022 the Grand Live du Voyage d’Affaires, successfully inaugurated mid Covid crisis. This exceptional format of exchanges between professionals and experts, in all their diversity, aims to support four dimensions essential to our professions: collective reflection, communication on change, human and emotional value of exchanges, usefulness and sense of action. This new series of Grand Live notebooks allows us to extend and deepen the reflections and proceed to share them within our organizations.
