PLEASE NOTE: Remember to check  your time on a world clock and daylight savings time changes before joining us!
The Collab Salon is a monthly webinar where online presenters and members from around the world meet together informally in real time. Our Zoom meetings always occur at 4 pm (New York time) on the third Sunday of the month, and at each Salon, we focus on a different theme as a starter dough for invigorating conversation.   Our meetings last 1.5 hours. Events are recorded and then become available on-demand afterward to all Collab Salon members including anyone not able to join in real time. All members are encouraged to share reflections, follow-up materials, and ideas for future Salons.

What’s It like?

The Collab Salon is like opening a window wider, leaning out, and seeing more of the landscape around me. I’m online so much for my work that I really appreciate the shorter Collab sessions – plenty of time to exchange with folx I would not normally meet from around the world without zoom fatigue fallout.

I HIGHLY recommend any practitioners who want great Continuing Professional Development (CPD) to join Collab Salon, the monthly webinars have great presenters and the online software used rarely has glitches, even logging in from Australia.
