Roundtable sessions allow for extended discussion among a smaller group and are excellent for giving and receiving targeted feedback and engaging in in-depth discussions.
How it works:
Delegates will have the opportunity to participate in 2 roundtable sessions. Each session begins with a 5 minutes introduction on the chosen topic, followed by 20 minutes of discussion and feedback. The session ends with 5 minutes of “wrap-up” on the discussion.
This is an opportunity for delegates to discuss and gain new insights. Delegates will have a choice to attend two 30-minute rotating interactive round tables.
Round Table One
