    Had a lovely evening, thanks again! I second Jen that interactivity would be great at the next event. I'd love to know who else is in attendance and perhaps hear a 30sec intro from everyone so that we can connect with them more. Yes, it takes time but is a fantastic way to build a real community and get the most out of an event. The wealth of experience and knowledge in the room was ah-mazing - let's really tap into it and get people talking to each other! See you at the next one...

    Thank for setting this up & looking forward to the next event. You put together a strong panel, and the hosting was well done!

    In the future, I'd love to see some 'roundtable discussion' meetup events spawn from the question/answer portion of the town hall. Perhaps retailers, vendor solutions & industry experts could share their insight/creative solutions/product offerings. While these events may be slightly smaller (as specific topics are likely to appeal to a subset of the meetup members), this would allow for conversation & sharing.

    Please message me if you're looking for behind-the-scenes support :)

      Thanks for coming out and for the great feedback, Jen. Our goal is to definitely keep conversations flowing as organic as possible. Are you suggesting that there should be more opportunities for the audience to participate within these discussions?

      Feel free to contact me directly through here:­

      Would love to chat more.
