Comments

A Meet&Connect can also be on a specific topic. If there are more speakers, a round table for each speaker can be organised, and, at each round table, a specific aspect of the sector/topic can be tackled. This format can also be used to talk a bout a movie/theatre play/a topic, with one or more speakers and can take the shape pf a brainstorming session or a debate.
