Skip the small talk and make Big Talk with quarantine partners… or while 6 feet apart.

Tune into this live Q&A with creator and CEO of Big TalkKalina Silverman. This started as an initiative aimed at skipping small talk to ask deeper questions and make more meaningful connections. Big Talk has since grown into a global movement that includes a YouTube video series, Amazon exclusives card game, diverse educational programs, and events around the world from Australia to Singapore to Uzbekistan. You may recognize some influential users of Big Talk, ranging from Keith Urban, Lorde, and Billie Eilish to the Los Angeles Lakers.

* We encourage people to watch the webinar with their current quarantine buddy or on FT with a friend or family member so they can interact with each other and ask the Big Talk questions.

*After the webinar, we offer an incentive to record your Big Talk conversations with your quarantine circle based off what you learned to win a set of Big Talk Question Card Game.

*Have a notecard or piece of paper handy so you can write your own Big Talk questions.
