Our Experts Videos

We videotape many of our Evenings with Experts lectures so that they are readily available to you whenever you wish, and to reach a large audience across Massachusetts and beyond. Our speakers are some of the best experts in the country. These recordings are professionally video-edited (so you can really see the speakers' slides). Learn and enjoy!
