***  JOTW Community Conversation:

 

While enjoying a proper Sunday afternoon pub meal with Gloria Walker, we came up with a good idea.  Using the power of this network, we want to plan a JOTW community conversation—perhaps a global “chat” discussion over a 48 hour period (so people could come and go depending on where they are in the world).  The subject could be something such as “What is the future of our profession?”  It would be like going to a roundtable discussion, but virtual, sort of global, yes, that’s it, global, so a reeeaallly round table.

 

Stand by for details…although I’m open now to any suggestions as to format, method or subject matter.
