The 2013 FoST Summit featured twenty-two visionary speakers, but we know you were only able to sit in on roundtable sessions with three of them. So, we’ve decided to bring the speakers back for a weekly series of conversations via Google Plus Hangouts. These conversations are open to the public and free to watch, so we encourage you to invite your friends and colleagues. The Hangouts will be professionally facilitated, in many cases by the same facilitators who helped guide the discussions at the summit.
 
FoST’s Virtual Roundtable series kicks off on January 8th at 12:30 p.m. EST with Robert Wong, Chief Creative Officer, Google Creative Lab. The following schedule lists the speakers and topics that will be featured over the coming months:
