Speed Share and Learn


Elizabeth Hazard, Social Entrepreneur


The CHQ community draws fascinating people from around the globe. Now we want to hear from you! We’re creating a way for community members to share their insights and expertise on a topic, skill, hobby, or career. We’re sponsoring a Speed Share and Learn Forum, where community members deliver five-minute talks, followed by group discussion & questions for five minutes. Past topics have included analyzing a poem, bird watching, meditation, knot tying, or book publishing. This learning forum, so aligned with CHQ’s core values, and will bring the CHQ community together in a fun, educational setting.

What’s a passion you’d like to share with the community? Sign up NOW to be a presenter! To get on the schedule, contact:
All of the CHQ community is welcome! You can come and be a sharer or a learner.
