Aug 12, 2014 | Burlington Hive, Burlington
Our un-meetup theme is Networking: Collaboration, Partnerships, Referrals, and Career Growth.
How It Works
We allot four 30-minute timeslots for presentations and/or discussions. Any un-meetup attendee can provide a lightening presentation to pitch their topic (2min max, no slides) - The proposed topic must relate to the Networking theme.
The audience will then vote on the topics that interest them most. This will be fun and engaging, not a simple show-of-hands - even the voting process contains networking.
The top 2 topics will immediately begin in parallel as 30-minute sessions. Next, a short break, then topics 3 & 4 in parallel. If you don't like the session you voted yourself into, vote again with your feet and move to the other session.
By the way, the person who suggested the topic must either present, facilitate, or a blend of both.
