Fireside Chat on Covid -19 Scenarios with Dr Navjot Singh and Dr Mekala Krishnan, McKinsey and Company
On December 8th the Wharton Club of Boston had the privilege of hosting a Fireside Chat, "An optimistic scenario for the US response to COVID-19". Dr. Navjot Singh Managing partner at McKinsey& Company Boston Office and Dr. Mekala Krishnan Senior fellow at the McKinsey Global Institute (MGI) made this a truly memorable event.
Keeping with the theme of the evening, Dr. Singh and Dr. Krishnan discussed the vaccines and the impact on our current economic climate. Event Chairs Wendy Dalwin and Neal Piliavin attributed the great success of the evening to the superb effort and considerable knowledge of the noted McKinsey experts . Those who attended were engaged and received valuable insight from such industry thought leaders.
“There is an optimistic scenario where at least in the US we could be approaching the new normal by July 4th 2021. Lots of unknowns and challenges, but theoretically possible!” This insight from Dr. Singh brought forth a great deal of discussion. There will be a follow up event with the discussion leaders in early 2021.
