BroadThinking was one of the first events to move the fully online at the start of the COVID-19 crisis in 2020. It was a big success and we have received good feedback indicating there is even more appetite for relevant information when everybody is working from home. This year we aim to make the experience even better and include possibilities for you to engage with your peers in better ways than a normal webinar allows.
