Roundtable Lunches

12:15 pm - 1:15 pm

230 A

Roundtable lunches are small-group consultative sessions led by experts and thought leaders, held at roundtables of 8 to 10 participants. They are freeform, with each reflecting the topic and style of the moderator. In some cases, participants have lots of questions for the Roundtable Leader. In others, the Roundtable Leader has a question or challenge for the participants. The idea is to make it as interactive as possible, addressing the interests of those at the table. We typically recommend preparing a brief one-minute overview of your topic and being prepared with a few questions for the participants at your table to get the conversation going.
