Facilitated round table discussions (B)
Time: 4:15 pm - 12:00 am
Date: Day One | Monday 12 November 2018
This series of hosted round table discussions (B1 – B7) will focus entirely on how other firms deal with the challenges you face. These interactive and informal discussions follow Chatham House rules – giving you the freedom to speak your mind. Small groups allow everyone to participate and each group feeds back, giving all attendees access to the knowledge pool. These brainstorming sessions will give insight into your peers’ challenges and provide solutions to your own.
There will be two 40-minute sessions.
