CALA Summer Symposium

Bob Kramer Provides Insights on Finding Opportunities Amidst Disruption at the CALA Summer Symposium

COVID-19 has brought new challenges to senior housing and the aging services industry. Those challenges can be framed as hurdles, or they can compel us to rethink how we do things, and can provide a catalyst for innovation.

How do you make that switch, to finding the opportunities in the midst of difficult times? Join Bob Kramer, president of Nexus Insights, at the CALA Summer Symposium, where he will discuss how disruption can lead to opportunities to challenge the status quo. “The scope of the disruption and the speed of the changes triggered by the response to the COVID-19 pandemic can be overwhelming, even as they are unprecedented,” said Kramer.

“What does this mean for the future of senior living?” he asked. “How will we change how we communicate with residents, family members and staff, how we think about the delivery of healthcare to our residents, and how we describe and deliver an attractive value proposition to prospective residents and their families? Why is a strong culture so essential in a crisis and why must we better segment our market and differentiate our products in the future?” Kramer is excited to address the difficult questions.

The founder of the National Investment Center for Seniors Housing & Care (NIC), Kramer is a mentor to the industry, and an aging services entrepreneur. He recently started his newest venture, Nexus Insights, an advisory firm that helps clients by leveraging a network of leading thinkers and thinking leaders to develop provocative ideas and new models for the future of aging services. The company aims to help the industry and society rethink aging from every angle.

This presentation is part of the CALA Summer Symposium, which is being held virtually this year on June 23 and 24th. The annual symposium provides participants a chance to gather the information and encouragement that will bolster you in your work and help you fulfill your priority of making sure residents and team members stay safe and healthy.
