On October the 25th, we were proud to begin our community speaking series at Apolis: Community Centre located in Soho in the heart of Manhattan. The goal of our speaking series is to invite industry leaders to share their perspective on how their profession impacts & fosters community.
This was our first live conversation at our newest retail space, focused on how innovation impacts community. The event was moderated by author and entrepreneur Kyle Westaway. The two panelists were the founder and CEO of charity: water, Scott Harrison, & the head of social impact for VICE media Katherine Keating. Kyle Westaway sparked a 30-minute live discussion with insightful questions of his own and spontaneous questions from the audience and social media. The evening was concluded with a Virtual Reality tour of a charity: water project to highlight the excellent work they are doing. Learn more here. Special thanks to the 200+ guests that joined us, as well as Kyle, Scott and Katherine for their valuable insights.
We hope you will join us for our next event at Apolis: Community Centre that we will announce soon. Contact our Retail Manager, Benny Quinonez, for a personal invite once details for our next event are finalized.
