Each interactive event will include a brief introduction of the speaker and a framing of the event topic, followed by a facilitated 50-minute audience Q&A.
“Furthering our mission to advance mobility knowledge and solutions for the benefit of humanity, we continue to look for ways to deliver timely and trusted content around the intelligence and trends in technology and mobility,” said Frank Menchaca, Chief Growth Officer at SAE International. “With SAE Live, we aim to facilitate real, two-way conversations between speakers and attendees where audiences can engage and ask questions to help aid in their professional growth.”
