Fiona Forbes is a 30-minute talk series that includes fun & casual personality-driven conversation, and combines it with a candid panel commentary featuring distinct views on matters of interest to the community.
The show will include two integral segments – a feature interview and a roundtable discussion – and will introduce a short and fun signature Q&A piece 7 Questions that will wrap each episode.
