We’re social creatures. As coworkers, we enjoy the dopamine hit of in-person interaction. As leaders, we enjoy the increased creativity of face-to-face brain synchronization. As event planners, we enjoy the ineffable buzz and excitement that comes with live events. We understand why we come together; how we’ll come together during and post-pandemic remains in flux. 2021 will require big decisions, a healthy dose of education, and a tiny bit of rule-breaking (nothing dangerous, we promise).
