COVID-19 is wreaking havoc on lives, livelihoods and businesses around the globe. It’s forced the world out of its collective comfort zone and into the unknown. In this uncertain time, fear is rampant. But so is faith. And Founder and Chair of Work Club Global Soren Trampedach chooses to see the silver lining. For him, it’s all about perspective.

“It’s challenging but, in some ways, I enjoy this period of change,” he admits. “We’ve had it tough like everybody else. But I think what this pandemic is going to do is just accelerate change that is inevitable anyway. It’s just skipping a few years, which to me is exciting. COVID-19 is going to bring lots of opportunity.”

He likens the change to a white sheet of paper. On that white sheet of paper are a few black dots. The black dots represent current industries. And the white space represents all of the industries and businesses we don’t know of today. That’s where the opportunity lies.

“A lot of people say we will lose 40 per cent of our jobs, or black dots, in the coming years to AI and authorization, and that’s true,” Soren shares. “But we are also going to be creating new jobs and a lot more new black dots. This disruption will only accelerate that process.”
