Welcome to Participate.
Participate is a platform where the world collaborates. We believe that people should be able to learn when, where and how they want. Great podcasts tell great stories, and our partners at Participate have stories to tell. We’ll talk to them about what they do, how they do it and why it’s important. We’ll also talk to them about how they’re building their community and the ways they’re helping us all learn together.
Join Mike Washburn and Dr. Julie Keane of Participate as they speak with Heather LaGarde from Switchpoint. If there has been any sort of upside to our global pandemic experience the last 10 months, its that we’ve been forced to reimagine things we’ve been doing for years, sometimes decades, in person. Switchpoint proves that this reimagining can happen for in-person events and the result is a beautiful, diverse virtual experience. Through switching to a virtual setting, Switchpoint was able to reach a global audience and spark meaningful conversations in real-time. Julie and I were thrilled to play a role in helping them pull it off and we’re excited to have Heather join us.
