Run an executive question and answer (AMA) session

What’s it handy for?

Build a space for employees to ask questions freely of executive staff, who can read the channel and answer questions as they come in.

An executive AMA is a great way to:

  • Hold office hours
  • Appear in regular live Q&A sessions
  • Create an open door policy
  • Remain accessible to employees, even in larger companies
