The Room Where It Happens
Building Relationships in a Digital Age

Presented by: Rodolfo “Rudy” Rivera, Jason Levin, & Bernie Resser

Thursday, November 19th
12:00 PM EDT

Virtual meetings and events have become the norm in our interactions with clients, colleagues, friends, and even family over the past eight months. As we continue in this unexpected digital age, it can be easy to fall into the monotony of countless virtual meetings and events. Zoom Fatigue is hitting us all hard.

Join Rudy, Jason, and Bernie as they describe creative ways to not only enhance your Zoom or virtual meetings and events, but also give tips and tricks on how to genuinely make connections and network through Zoom while we are not able to make those connections in person.

Live Interactive Q&A – Bring/Submit Your Questions
