From conversations to connections.

Last month we spoke about the conversations that made #QCGC19 a grand success. But what use are conversations if they do not give rise to connections? By this, we refer to the transforming of a discussion with five panelists into five panelists in a discussion. At #QCGC19, we witnessed discussions, each of which cohered into something: a point of view, a point of departure, an ‘Aha!’ moment...

So, whether you missed the event due to unavoidable circumstances or simply want to re-live it, worry not. We have recordings ready for you!
