Literally, the world stopped when governments worldwide ordained lockdowns to stop the spread of Coronavirus. With flights canceled all over the globe, people instructed to stay at home, and businesses forced to close down indefinitely, essentially everything was put to a standstill; hence, bringing down economies around the world into a recession. The gravity of the situation was not anything one would have anticipated.

Dive into Kunle and Michael’s conversation on how UNDONE is improvising new strategies and tapping into consumers’ mindset to keep their products relevant and valuable amidst Hong Kong’s political strife and the Coronavirus pandemic.
