2020 was ruthless, unforgiving and unprecedented. Because, while our bodies became sick from Covid 19, so did our economy. There were redundancies, company closures, and the largest rise in unemployment since the global financial crisis. The seismic shift in our daily lives forced us to change, adapt and pivot.
Join Newshub’s Wilhelmina Shrimpton who speaks to Kiwis whose livelihoods were stolen overnight, and pushed into survival mode in the blink of an eye.
Each episode will share a new story of sudden change. Everyday people who were made redundant, forced to close their business or completely change the way they operated. From former cabin crew, pilots and media executives to event organisers, designers and travel agents. How did they cope? And where are they now? How did they utilise their skills to forge a new path, and become a career chameleon?
This is ‘The Pivot’.
