Tele-Whiskey: Digital Conversations that Provoke

Those great conversations that only happen over a pint at the pub, a splash of bourbon before dinner, a cuppa tea during a mid-morning break, or some coffee over a tasty breakfast. Semi-filtered, some strong opinions, and you might not agree … but we will certainly get you thinking…We are not here to define and solve problems. We are here to talk about stuff that most people don’t want to talk about – non-Politically Correct tech, vulnerable leadership, “inside baseball” for corporate life.
