Over 800 World Leaders to Discuss Post-Covid Disruptions at the Horasis Extraordinary Meeting 2020
Horasis, the global visions community, has announced their 2020 Horasis Extraordinary Meeting to be held virtually on 1st October 2020.

The world will not go back to a ‘new normal’ using a simplistic resetting of legacy systems
