Whether it was giants trading shots in a Trumped-up trade war, growing indications that a full-blown techlash may soon be upon us, dire warnings about catastrophic climate change, rapidly shifting retail terrain, the long-awaited rollout of Canadian cannabis legalization, ground-breaking and history-making women, creeping geopolitical uncertainty and so, so much more, our latest lap around the sun has left us with a lot to think about, and a ton of work to do — especially in how we go about our business.
