What a year it’s been.

It’s safe to say when we launched Ripple Effect this past January, none of us could have predicted how drastically and quickly the world would change. Season 1 feels like a lifetime ago!

As with most things this year, Ripple Effect has been impacted by the rapid changes happening around us. As we began production of this season, we wanted to know how leaders across the globe are reimagining work to keep up with the unique obstacles thrown at us this year.

We cover a lot in season 2, from transitioning a long-standing, in-person conference to a virtual experience to adjusting golf courses to the needs of contactless service. This season digs into the challenges brought forth by the pandemic and the creative and innovative solutions used to overcome them.

Ripple Effect season 2 officially launches on September 24, 2020. Here’s who and what to expect on this season:
