The last year has been one of unprecedented change and new strategic clarity. As we accelerate out of the pandemic, we now have a strong sense of where we’re going, and what it will take to win. To succeed, we need to deepen the value we deliver to event creators and the audiences they depend on. And we need to continue to evolve our mechanisms and culture that will allow us to sustain and strengthen our competitive advantages. We’ve made enormous progress, but there’s still a lot of work to be done. That’s where we — and you — come in.
