About this event

Friends! We had so much fun last February during our community chat with Stewart Butterfield, Slack’s CEO and co-founder, that we invited him back to do it again. It’s the perfect time to dive into what’s coming next for Slack and reflect on the past year—and what a year it was! From the completion of an acquisition to the digital HQ revolution and everything in between, a lot has happened over the past 365 days, and we know you’ve got questions.

Moderated by Slack’s director of community, Elizabeth Kinsey, this fireside chat with Slack’s CEO and co-founder is all about getting as much info for the community as possible. Whether you want to talk about the digital HQ, the next generation of Slack platform or what’s got Stewart inspired for year eight of making people’s working lives simpler, more pleasant and more productive, we want to hear about it!

Submit your questions in advance, and we’ll make sure to surface the community’s pressing issues. This event will not be recorded, so be sure to RSVP and join us on the day.
