Speed Networking

Speed Networking

Day 3 started unconventionally.

Delegates walked into the conference room to see rows of chairs facing each other.  They had been organised into either red or black rows.  On finding their rows the MC shared the rules of engagement.

Two minute talk – one person talks while the other actively listens

1 minute pause

Two minute talk – the other person swops

1 minute to move down by 1 chair

It resulted in very lively conversation.  It was loads of fun playing a grownup version of musical chairs.

 

Delegates comments:

“Fantastic.  Got to speak to other people I hadn’t met yet.”

“Could have been longer.” 

“Loved it.  Wish it had been on Day 1.”
