Firestarters takes place on URfeed, a video conversation platform that provides a place for groups of people to connect for ‘face to face’ conversation and its unique video messaging system lets people take part in multiple group conversations, without the need to have everyone online at the same time. People can drop in, watch what others are saying and ask questions or say their piece when it's convenient for them.
Everyone can get involved with this free virtual event. Simply sign up - for free - at thefirestarters.co.uk to benefit from all the fantastic future discussions that are lined-up.
