The purpose of the networking sessions is for delegates to have somewhere to go to hang out between sessions and emulate the networking that normally happens at coffee breaks at conferences. The session will include a main group discussion, a breakout room to meet up with the speakers of the previous sessions, as well as break out rooms for small groups to discuss any topic you like. Imagine it’s like standing around in a coffee break after each speaker session. You can talk about the weather, cats, coaching – anything goes, it’s up to you!
