Conference Networking

Conference Networking

whether you’re confident or shy, get to know 10 new conference attendees 

WHAT’S THE INTENTION?

To create a space for conference participants to make new professional connections for mutual learning, support and problem solving.

WHY ARE WE DOING THAT?

We can sometimes work in isolation, without knowing that our colleague down the road has faced the same challenges as us, and has learnt some valuable hacks and workarounds.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

  • Capacity || Increased access to resources
  • Connection || The ability to ask for and receive the support of others
  • Solidarity || I’m not alone in this world

WHO’S IT FOR?

30-130 Conference participants.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Through group activities and short brief chats that:

  • Get you meeting at least ten new people
  • Give you the licence to approach new faces
  • Use a variety of differently formatted exercises
  • Mostly through standing and walking around activities
  • Encourage post-conference follow-up
  • Suggest the idea of collaboration

Supported by a gentle and warm, yet strong leadership style by the facilitator to encourage participation, buy-in and smiles.
