Montreal, Canada – March 19, 2015 -Social memorial platform, Qeepr.com successfully held the first #Talkdeath live roundtable event on March 12th, 2015. Noted mortician, funeral director and New York Times Best Selling author, Caitlin Doughty was the first panelist and provided great insight into the world of “alternative” funerals. Doughty touched on modern approaches within the death industry, including green burials and home care. The second panelist, Lauren LeRoy, a twenty five year old New York State funeral director and blogger, answered questions based on her experiences within “traditional” funeral practices. LeRoy brought insights into her experience as a young, female professional and discussed the expanding possibilities for personalized services within the field.
The #Talkdeath roundtable was an industry first, streamed live to viewers via Google Hangouts On Air and YouTube. The Qeepr moderators asked the panelists questions that were sent in from the public via social media and each panelist was given a chance to respond. Qeepr Communications Director, Jeremy Cohen, proclaimed “it was really exciting to receive so many great questions for the panelists. Followers watching the event tweeted questions live, making it a very interactive discussion.”
Qeepr founder, Mandy Benoualid, explained that “the strong involvement and positive feedback from the public throughout the #Talkdeath event made it clear how important it is to create a dialogue between the death community, death professionals and the public.” Qeepr received great support from both alternative and traditional funeral organizations following the #Talkdeath broadcast with many professionals reaching out to applaud the effort to open a death positive conversation.
