LUNCHTIME WEBINAR: How are you holding up?
International lunchtime chat and live-stream on staying productive and conducting business in challenging times
Thursday, March 26th 12 PM (Eastern Time)
Here is the lineup/layout for today’s chat. The format of the talk is in a roundtable-style, feel free to comment and ask questions as we go. Because of the number of people that might attend, I recommend using the “Raise Hand” button in Zoom if people are talking (that will help us to avoid cross-talk). We have two panellists that we proposed questions too. Our questions and their bios are below; I look forward to everyone’s thoughts!
