Coffee Shop Chats

IMPACT 2020 Coffee Shop Chats are virtual daily chat rooms that are open to all attendees to connect with one another and engage in free and lightly structured discussions on industry hot topics. These chats offer a unique opportunity to connect with others when keynotes and formal education sessions are not being broadcast. Annual Committee Members (and TMA Staff) will help facilitate structured discussions on 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 industry anecdotes. You do not need to sign up in advance. Feel free to pop in and out of the coffee shop depending on your schedule and topics that interest you.
