Ask Us Anything: America’s Adaptation to the Time of Coronavirus

America is in a crisis. The Covid-19 pandemic is already reshaping daily American life in ways unprecedented and unanticipated. As this is happening, the team at Ipsos is using every tool at their disposal to keep track of what the American public knows, fears, experiences, and is doing in response. As we move from the “age of uncertainty” to the “time of coronavirus”, how will Americans adapt as consumers, citizens, and humans?

Join us for an interactive, complimentary "Ask us anything" webinar examining how public mood is changing as a result of Covid-19, where concerns are most focused now, and how the crisis is affecting American's behavior now and in the future. Following his presentation, Cliff Young will moderate a panel of our consumer, behavior, and behavioral experts to answer any and all questions

Register today. 

In the meantime, please revisit our Ask Us Anything on demand webinar recorded in March 2020.
