One of my favorite pastimes at the end of the year is perusing retrospective reviews of noteworthy and historical events from the prior 12 months.

If there are overused words and phrases for 2020, they are understandably “new normal,” “pivot,” and “uncertain.” If you are looking for alternatives to “uncertain,” I suggest the following substitutes: unsettled, unresolved, unsure, unpredictable, and, my personal favorites, irregular, hairy, and...
As Global Crisis Unfolds, TMA Membership Is a Necessity
While much of the world at large has been stilled as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, the restructuring world is moving at warp speed. Our state of preparedness as professionals will now be tested, and we at TMA are at the ready. These past few months have tested so much in so many of us. It has...
