  • Participant-driven and participation-rich events (not the official title, which says nothing!)

    Participative event formats that facilitate greater attendee engagement are growing in popularity. With the rise of conveniently accessible online content, conference sessions that could just as well be watched on a computer are losing their appeal. In addition, research has shown that the way that adults actually learn to do their jobs has changed dramatically over the last twenty years. The majority of adult learning now takes place via our peers, not through formal training, and we need to reflect this fundamental change in learning modality in the processes we use in our meetings if they are to remain popular and relevant.

    In this interactive session Adrian will explain why it's vital that our future events incorporate participant-driven and participation-rich designs.

    At 9:20am to 10:00am, Wednesday 30th November
