How to plan a speed dating event
Seat each of your topical experts on a table, surrounded by up to 10 attendees. Then, the fellow attendees have 1 minute to chip in.After a brief introduction by the expert, each attendee has 1 minute to introduce themselves and to spell out specifics they would like discussed. Allow a maximum of 3 minutes for each attendee’s introduction and topic.If space is scarce, set up two chairs on each side of a coffee table.
Give each expert their own ‘station’ and have the attendees rotate.
If you’re deciding on a room set, classroom style with rows of chairs facing each other works great.
