In a recent interactive masterclass Dr. Helena Boschi, a renowned psychologist specializing in neuroscience, explored with global general counsel the impact of the pandemic on our ability to trust and form meaningful relationships. Together members discussed with Boschi what is needed for us all to feel able to recover relationships that we may have lost or to widen our network which may have narrowed in focus over the last 18 months.

Trust is one of those things that is hard to define and even harder to measure but it is an essential element of human interaction and is key for successful and meaningful business relationships. Boschi describes trust as “the bridge that connects the unknown with the known; it is a leap of faith that comes with risk.”
