Peer-to-Peer Meetings

Meet virtually for in-depth conversations with your colleagues

Conducting business virtually makes it more challenging to meet and network with like-minded peers. During this time of disruption and uncertainty, it’s become even more critical to collaborate with peers who are facing the same challenges.

Now, we are bringing you the opportunity to set up 1-to-1 meetings in a private, virtual setting with Evanta Mock Virtual Executive Summit peers directly after our virtual town hall gatherings.

  • Peer-to-Peer meetings are 25 minutes in length, giving you the chance for more personal interaction and in-depth conversation with your fellow Evanta Mock Virtual Executive Summit peers.
  • All conversations are private and will not be recorded
  • Meet up to 3 peers based on your shared interests or priorities

Customer Testimonials

  • ’The peer to peer mtgs were maybe the BEST part of this mtg’ Edward Wagoner, Executive Director, Digital, JLL
