Our event philosophy and facilitation focus on maximizing collaboration and peer sharing, while making sparing use of one-to-many and several-to-many session formats such as presentations and panels. We believe the ultimate potential and power of any convening lie in the collective untapped knowledge and experience of the participants, and we strive to tap that vast store by maximizing dialog, creativity and idea exchange.
We build agendas around participant-driven dialog and collaboration that connect all the stakeholders in strategy, design and development processes, and model our events to reflect the diverse and network-oriented nature of the communities we convene. Our approach prioritizes concrete and tangible outcomes that engender rich post-event collaboration and meaningful impact.
Please see our white paper on our event philosophy and methodology. We maintain a wiki documenting our facilitation model and welcome questions, contributions and other feedback.
