How to Take Part in Vototalks

As I think many of you will have seen, Maria and I have been invited to be a part of the Vototalks digital festival taking place next week and which runs from the 6th to the 10th. The event is being organised by Votorantim Group, and forms part of their 100th anniversary celebrations this year.

Speaking about the event, Luciana Torres, Coordinator of Votorantim Academy, said this week that “We value dialogue, we believe in people and we are committed to supporting and developing collaborative platforms. The Vototalks Festival has been designed to be democratic, with open access to enable the dissemination of knowledge widely. We have invited speakers from many parts of Brazil and from around the world in order to spread out this exchange of knowledge”.

All talks in Portuguese will have English subtitles. I thought I would just explain how to register for the event so you can sign up and enjoy the talks if you are outside of Brazil.
