Our guest SME today is Dr. Cole Barfield. With Dr. Barfield, we are going to be discussing some of the top considerations that every sports & entertainment organization needs to think about when making a plan for return to operations.
Dr. Barfield's 5 key considerations for any organization returning to operations: 1) Communication (w/ local government and local health partners) 2) Adaptability (w/ capacity allowance) 3) Vigilance (thinking through every aspect of the operation differently) 4) Culpability (partner with your lawyers and focus on safe processes) 5) Coordination (what are the roles and responsibilities to make decisions?) In past few months, Dr. Barfield and his team have worked with airlines, fast food chains and financial institutions to create systems and plans for returning safely.
