“It was a difficult year all around in 2020 and many companies have had to pivot rapidly to survive. The shifting market landscape has led to skills gaps being exposed in many industries, including in the areas of internal and external communications, leadership, workplace culture and others. We see this disruption as an opportunity for our reinvention and growth,” said Andy See, Founder and Managing Director of Perspective Strategies Sdn Bhd.
