A super evening was had by all at the 25 September MoMo Tokyo 2nd anniversary event; many thanks to all who attended and especially to the panel members! We’ve posted some photos of our fantastic panel in action and – as a special bonus for those who couldn’t make it due to emergency surgery, etc. – we have uploaded an .mp3 audio file of the Q&A discussion.
NEW: ONLINE SURVEY. We have prepared an easy Online Survey with a few quick questions to get feedback from local MoMoers. Please do take two minutes to respond!
We’re planning the next event with a target date for 13 November, and we’ll be sure to get that announcement out to everyone once the details are locked down. Thanks again and see you soon!
Here’s a download link for the .mp3 file from our panel Q&A discussion. Run time: 70 mins (48MB)
