When you register for a web chat you will be sent two links.  The first is for the web chat itself, which is mainly Darlene Hamilton asking the speaker about 5 things he or she is passionate about, though some questions which audience members type into the chat box may be answered.  The second is for the after-talk which is an informal session where audience members can put questions directly to the speaker.  Each session lasts about an hour.  The web chat will be recorded and the link will appear here; the after-talk won't.
