About the GINTL Coffee Chats
GINTL Coffee Chats are one-hour online morning events. Each event has a speaker who shares on a specific topic for 15 to 20 minutes. The rest of the time is spent in breakout rooms by GINTL regional networks or thematic topics. Each breakout room has a notetaker and facilitator, who records and runs the discussion. After, the goal is to facilitate more opportunities for discussion and to continue using the online platform to foster ideas and collaboration.
