This fall, Persona introduced Westporters to local political candidates.
Now it will connect leaders from around the state with the world. But there’s still a Westport hook.
Starting Monday (February 10, 6 p.m.), the social media/interview platform — founded right here, by Westporter Rob Simmelkjaer — will host a new, free series at the Library forum. The public can watch Connecticut leaders in business, politics, journalism, sports and more talk abut their lives and careers.
The first interview is with Nancy Wyman. The chair of the Connecticut Democratic Party and former lieutenant governor will discuss state and national elections.
Simmelkjaer is a former ESPN, ABC News and NBC Sports executive and journalist.
In other words: the perfect “persona” to introduce the new library series, and interview this statewide figure.
