Chat Rooms

The IMPACT 2020 Chat Rooms are virtual daily networking chats that are open to all attendees to connect with one another and engage in free and lightly structured discussions on industry hot topics or hobbies. These chats offer a unique opportunity to connect with others when keynotes and formal education sessions are not being broadcast. Featured TMA and Annual Committee Members (along with TMA Staff) will help facilitate structured forum discussions on various areas of expertise—posing questions and keeping the discussion moving. Hot topics will be added to each day's chat schedule so you can experience the full spectrum of the turnaround and restructuring industry in a welcoming environment ripe for thought leadership, idea sharing, and personal anecdotes. You do not need to sign up in advance



Below you'll find a list of topics that will be discussed at a specific time. Feel free to pop in and out of the chat room depending on your schedule and what interests you!
