The final episode of the first season of The Boardroom Webinar Series brought Will Hutson (CEO of LMTD) and Dr. Steven Griffiths from Khalifa University to discuss the new frontiers facing business, innovation, technology, and entrepreneurship.

- Climate change and its link to disease and peril: What will it take for us to learn the connection between the two? (Especially now that we have hard data-backed evidence)
