The Wheels first ever Virtual Summit Series has come to a close, leaving us inspired, energised, and with many thoughts about what the future might hold.
Across four events, they welcomed over 1,000 sector representatives to reflect on the current situation and the challenges that lie ahead of us, but also the opportunities that this upheaval may present for effecting lasting social change.
