What is a roundtable?
A roundtable is an informal knowledge-sharing session that brings together a diverse group of professionals to share their knowledge, discuss their challenges, learn new insights, and make new connections. We keep the group small (less than 12 participants) to give everyone the space to participate and contribute in deeper-dive discussions.
We keep the agenda simple:
Setting the scene
Why should I register?
If you’re missing the collaboration and conversational elements from a webinar, then a roundtable might be a great option for you. Be ready to deep-dive into different topics related to digital transformation and have a high-quality discussion with your peers. We host both industry-specific and cross-industry roundtables so there’s always a topic to interest you.
