On the Line with the Experts: Teleconference Archive

Over the past ten years of producing legacy films and speaking at various conferences, Arielle has connected with many talented people in diverse genres of work. Often, she learns that they share similar professional and personal goals - to help families become closer, to cultivate stronger communication at home and at the workplace, or to give others the opportunity for a creative outlet. To give these professionals the chance to share and discuss their research, advice, and stories, Arielle invites them to join her on a live teleconference call, free and open to the general public. Each teleconference is an informal, friendly conversation between Arielle and the special guest, during which they discuss the topic at hand and answer questions from the other participants.
