Preliminary format for the event (subject to vetting — feel free to post comments here):

  • Attendees who have something to share (e.g., their resume or a job description) will sign up in advance to deliver a 5-minute presentation. We’ll use a virtual gong (yes, a gong) to make sure we stay onDoughboy holding Excel chart time. Each presenter will be allowed to use one image or 3D object in support of their presentation. 
  • We will have a rapid networking session using a tool called Poinky’s Pods built by ThinkBalm Innovation Community member Jonas Karlsson. The tool seats you with another person for a five-minute exchange, after which all participants are shifted to another random seat. You never know who you’ll end up talking to! 
  • We’ll have some kind of solution for people to upload resumes, job descriptions, presentations, etc. . . . and it will all be integrated with LinkedIn.

More details TBD. Hope you can make it!
