Two Feet:

Part 1

During the afternoon attendees will participate in a dynamic, collaborative learning style developed by Open Space Technology (using your own two feet) which brings the synergy and excitement found in the breaks between meetings –to the meeting.


The guiding principles are simple:

a.    Participants decide what will be talked about and self-identify the discussion leader

b.    Participants choose which of the “groups” they want to join

c.    If when they get to the group they wish they had gone to another group – they use their two feet to walk to the next group. No hard feelings – everyone participating in the discussion which interests them most.
