What Tomorrow Will Bring: Recapping The New Workplace Webinars

Free Keypoint Intelligence series details current and future ways to work smarter, not harder



Carl Schell



What a long strange trip it’s been, but it’s almost over. And by that, I mean 2020. This year. This crazy year. Where the social and economic—and all other—ramifications of the coronavirus will be felt for a long time, regardless of a vaccine.


COVID-19 has presented countless challenges and impacted the bottom line of companies around the globe. But out of that bloomed new opportunities that have led to success stories in many industries—the print space included. These two aspects are the heart and soul of why Colin McMahon, Senior Editorial Analyst in Keypoint Intelligence’s Content & Publications Group, came up with the idea of The New Workplace Virtual Summit, a series of five webinars that tackled the changing landscape in the document imaging arena.


“It became quickly apparent in 2020 that we were looking at a historic period of acceleration,” said McMahon, who also produces The Key Point Podcast. “Conversations and debates that had been ongoing for decades—in the case of remote working—were resolved in a matter of weeks. With this in mind, I wanted to examine multiple areas where the print industry would see real change. There’s obviously a lot to talk about, but I hope the series helped scratch the surface of the opportunity to transform and reinvent ourselves for a better tomorrow.”
