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.
“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.”
