If you haven’t attended a CrowdChat before, you won’t want to miss this one! CrowdChats were launched to serve as a fun and interactive forum for the online community to experience a taste of the themes and topics at upcoming or current events. Attendees also can view the full transcript after the live chat is over and pull helpful nuggets of information from expert sources, while gaining practical insights and tips for their own experiences.
