The Recovery Summit was conceived, curated and coordinated by Cosimo Turroturro, Esther Nelson and Patrick Nelson of Speakers Associates, a global speaker bureau serving some of the world’s most successful organisations.
“Since the beginning of 2020, the lives and routines of billions of people across the world have changed at breath taking speed and we’ve seen the global economy shut down almost completely.” Patrick Nelson
“We created The Recovery Summit in response to this – an online event that will cut through the current flow of the news about the crisis, the shutdown and the problems, and instead provide businesses, corporations and governments with practical strategies, mindsets and tools to move forward.”
Cosimo Turroturro, CEO of Speakers Associates and curator of the summit speakers said: “The Recovery Summit is the largest and most ambitious event of its kind since the pandemic hit. Never before has a global audience been able to have live access to such esteemed speakers. We hope as many people as possible will join us for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear this unique collection of the world’s most authoritative thinkers share their years of experience, strength and strategies.”
