Our introductory Icebreaker Session is the most informal roundtable of the conference.
The purpose of the session is to build connections with fellow attendees over a couple of drinks and great conversation in a relaxing atmosphere.
We get together on the day before the event to connect with each other, find out who is attending, and get into the conference mood.
These roundtables are run without any flipcharts or pinboards — it’s just you and the attendees discussing the issue.
While preparing, we recommend choosing an accessible topic that will spark a great discussion, instead of something highly technical.
Your role is to guide the discussion by encouraging others to share their experiences and ideas.
We recommend starting with a short round of introductions before moving on to the topic discussion.
We recommend asking open questions, which allow participants to give free and flexible answers.
Sometimes, participants need extra encouragement. Some participants may not directly relate to your topic, but they are still able to contribute new perspectives.
A great moderator is a great listener!
We got you — we will give you a short briefing just before the session starts.
