Work-in-Progress Presentation of/by/for Members 2pm-2:40pm

3 members each share something you’re working on and what kind of input you’d like for 5-8 minutes each. Then for 3 minutes, people share what resonated with you, and questions. Presentations will take place in the NW Room from 1pm to 1:40pm.

i. Goal: spend less than 30 minutes preparing specifically for the presentation.
ii. Goal: Have at least 3 things not perfect with what or how you’re sharing, maybe even very wrong, but happily/relaxedly.
iii. Goal: Generate dialogue on a current project to gain new perspectives and insight.

Start: May 12, 2015 2:00 pm
