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 organisation.



Running as 25 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.



Rotation 1: 13:50 - 14:15

Rotation 2: 14:25 - 14:50

Rotation 3: 15:00 - 15:25
