How we work

What happens at a ConnectMinds meeting?

It's a day of collaborative learning and feedback in an environment based on trust; always face-to-face.

We typically meet mid-morning to mid-afternoon at member organisations; an important part of the ConnectMinds experience is to visit other members in their work environment.

Members take turn hosting the meetings.

We announce meeting dates several months in advance. Agenda points and any preparation are shared in good time before the meeting.

You are the expert - and the group is your stage

The agenda is developed by the group leader, but based on ongoing dialogue with the members. The group leader will suggest themes and topics based on the trends and tendencies we observe across the network.

You will be asked to contribute by suggesting topics and challenges and by sharing examples of work, insights from projects, dos and don’ts etc.

You can always discuss your ideas and how to put them to the group with your group leader.

We don't do one-way seminars or "death-by-PowerPoint"!

Every meeting is a unique experience. The format will vary depending on the chosen topics, but the sessions will always be interactive with time for focused discussion. Everyone will be encouraged to provide input and feedback.

We occasionally invite guest speakers we trust; experts who provide deeper insights into relevant topics. These will never be sales pitches or marketing presentations.

Follow up after the meeting

Shortly after each meeting, you will receive follow up notes and any shareable resources (slides, reports etc) from your group leader - as well as the invite for the next meeting.
