Some weeks ago I had a chat with Dave Westin of Mobile Growth Association (MGA), I have known Dave for a very long time. He updated me about their upcoming event MGS Global Virtual Conference 1.0 and their roadmap for 2020-21. Local communities is part of their plan. It sounded very exciting and he mention I should talk to the CEO of this association, Jen Laloup. I did a fun and interesting interview with her.
Just a quick warning for people before you listen, her last name ‘Laloup’ means ‘wolf’ in french! It took the challenge and it turned out she was not scary at all, 100% passionate about her work. It got me excited!
