EXPLANATION

Why do we call this event a Summit? Conferences that last all day and revolve around lots of lectures have their place, particularly when colleagues can concentrate in one location. But for remote learning purposes, we’ve re-imagined the standard conference as a focused online summit rich with opportunities for interaction and collaboration:

PRESENTATION (60 min): One presentation by a relevant expert followed by moderated Q&A and discussion.
BREAKOUT (60 min): Everyone is broken into smaller work groups to answer certain questions and contribute to shared expertise and best practices.
plus either…
PANEL (30 min): Three or more experts answering a series of topical questions with moderated Q&A
..or…
GROUP PROJECT (30 min): A guided exercise that produces a permanent resource for future use

NOTE: We love the magic of live events, so our summits are planned and priced to encourage attendance and active participation. Presentations and panel discussions become available as recordings for Tribe Insiders and video registrants, while breakout sessions can only be experienced live.
