COVID-19’s Impact on the Channel: A Chat with Larry Walsh

The global COVID-19 pandemic has changed us: shaking us to our core as a nation and as individuals as we experience something that’s never happened in modern history. People are scared, people are uncertain, and we don’t know what’s going to come next.

That’s why, when speaking to Larry Walsh, CEO of 2112 Group today about the research they did regarding the pandemic’s impact on the channel, it was refreshing to hear a message of hope amid the constant stream of negativity coming at us – seemingly from every direction.

Our collective response to this outbreak has generally been fear, but we’ve also created a tale of a coming together to help each other. Companies large and small are committing to their employees that they’ll do whatever it takes to stay in business.
