Invitation: join two “Missed Conversation” sessions
We held two “Missed Conversations” to enable participation beyond the event in Berlin. In two separate live-streamed online meetings, we invited everyone who is interested in continuing the conversations from the event. We invited the onsite speakers and panelists and virtual participants from around the globe to join us in two separate Missed Conversations:
Session 1: 28 February 2020, 3pm GMT
Session 2: 11 March 2020, 8pm GMT
