    We've got used to working virtually and things may never fully go back to how they used to be so we're thinking about the human to human contact that we're missing.

    Studies show that 'water cooler talk' can have big benefits. So how do we gain these benefits when the participants (TM Forum members) work across many companies and many timezones?

    Here are some of the things we're thinking about at the moment. We have lots of ideas but it's more important to hear what you think.

    1. How can we be offer better networking at virtual events?
    2. How can we matchmake for Catalysts virtually?
    3. What would make this Community site work better for you?

    If you have thoughts on any or all of these please comment below; no idea is too crazy!

    **** edit, I reposted this elsewhere as I found I couldn't change the heading (something else to add to my list of improvements)
