  • April 02, 2020

Is there any optimism left out there? You bet there is, and sometimes you find it in the most unlikely places. This week, Larry Walsh the CEO of the 2112 Group, joins us and shares his thoughts on some recent research on the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

At the peak of the pandemic the 2112 Group reached out to Channel Chiefs and senior channel professionals, asking about the impact of this crisis. Their findings show some real leadership and uncovered optimism in the face of great adversity.

Join us for this special Covid-19 podcast and listen in as Larry Walsh and your host Steven Kellam discuss the findings and their thoughts on what’s happening in the world today.
