Online Communities on Gather with Phillip Wang

Virtual meetings were growing in popularity before the need accelerated as a result of the pandemic. Gather is a place where you can create a space for your community today. Users who join find themselves in a shared virtual space that offers the ability to interact with other users as well as interact with the environment itself.

In this episode, I interview Phillip Wang, CEO at Gather about the platform, online communities, and bridging the gap between people, technology, and connecting with each other.
