The programme also featured two blended panel sessions (pre-recorded and ‘live’ chat) on the topics of “Contributions and Challenges of Associations Around the World” and “Build your Global Strategy: What Really Matters Now and in Your Future?”
It was in the first panel that Toni and Bobby participated in the discussions.
