Everyone will be broken up into small, intimate groups of a ~10 people per group with 8 groups. Each of our 8 thought leaders will be allocated to a group each.

This is run as speed networking, round-robin style where each session is 15 minutes before the mentor moves onto the next group. By the end of the 2 hours, you will have had a chance to network with each of the mentors and get to know your group really well.
