Roundtable sessions 

Roundtable sessions allow for extended discussion and are excellent for giving and receiving targeted feedback and engaging in in-depth discussions. 
 
How it works: 
There will be 2 roundtable sessions, each 30 minutes in length and each focusing on a different topic. Delegates will have the opportunity to participate in both sessions. 
 
Each session typically begins with a 5 minutes introduction by the moderator on the chosen topic, followed by 25 minutes of discussion and feedback. Moderators will have a set of 3-4 targeted questions to focus the discussion.
