What are they?

Roundtables are small group discussions focused on a particular topic and directed by a central table host who will guide the conversation and facilitate the questions and answers from the participants. This is not death by power-point –the emphasis is on the discussion and debate among the 20 or so delegates sharing the table at any given time. Swap war stories, ask questions, gain a better understanding and then put it all into practice back in your department or agency.

 How will they work?

The roundtable discussions will run on day one, running as 30 minute topic centric discussions, with three rotations, delegates will have the opportunity to pre-select which tables they would like to attend ahead of the event. With three time slots available, there is something for everyone on offer, allowing you to build your own agenda and tailor the content to suit your enterprise and your job function.

Our delegates enjoy this interactivity and opportunities to share knowledge and a chance to hear what other departments and agencies are up to, which will benefit their organisation. The high-level interactive roundtable format is where delegates can tailor their content in line with their current investment priorities. The roundtable discussion is a platform to confirm and contrast ideas with subject matter experts, understand available solutions, share challenges with peers and make new professional contacts.
