Be Present Everywhere: Intros & Connections

October 12, 2021, 8:30:00 PM

"BPE," inaugurated at Mondo 2020, is an offering of committed global speakers/experts networking and sharing their businesses and missions with each other and with the global music community. It was created to celebrate, educate and forward ongoing music business through the pandemic, while most of us are working remotely. It's what has kept many music conferences, "conferences," while operating virtually; the interactions, introductions, contacts shared, networking have shown the value and necessity of community in a uniquely isolated time. With many thousands of intros and personal (virtual) meetings between delegates and well over 250 speakers from many countries; speaker and delegate contacts distributed globally; communities connected, networked and shared; we'll never know all the "results" of these sessions. These can be lifetime, life and business changing relationships and they have been useful and enjoyable, with intensity, care and hilarity during a shared global and for most, very personal, crisis. Join the fun and participate.
