Part 4 of 4 interviews from our end-of-year event, The Pain and Triumphs of 2020: The Biggest Lessons We Learned This Year, where we asked guest speakers (several of our favorite people who have been part of the Tech 2025 community for years!) what their most profound lesson of 2020 was and how it changed their outlook on the future. They gave us much food for thought! In this episode, longtime friend of the community and advisor, Ed Maguire (Research Principal, SMBC Nikko Securities America, Inc.) shares lessons we should take away from the experiences of people who struggled the worst last year.
