Hi Amy,

Thanks for the welcome, and your comments.

The format of the world cafe has been chosen by the client, and he decided for 10 tables. In fact, he uses this format and tailors to his specific needs. So it will look like a cafe, but not a 'real' one... He wants the participants (coming from several countries) to answer 2 specific questions. So even the rounds are a bit changed.
And I have to train him and one director, giving them both tips and tricks as they will facilitate with me, mainly oriented on the content itself. They need to know how to help participants the right way.
On the day before, I will host a first team building for the same teams: the relationship triangle. This will be the foundation for the world cafe.
Well an exciting experience, I have to work hard on it to make it a success.

I will keep you posted. This event will take place on Feb 14 & 15 (2 half-days).

Hi Amy,

Thank you for the welcome.  I attended eight of the first ten STIA conferences and presented at the 2011 conference.  Had many great learning experiences there.  Look forward to learning and sharing.
