Meeting Style

Forum Speaker Meeting Structure

We intend to organise our speaker meetings in a structure which is designed to encourage discussion and disputation.
  • A 5-minute soapbox or "provocation".
  • The Main Speaker.
  • [Subsidiary Speaker - an alternative view on the same topic; or on a related topic.]
  • Response from the Main Speaker, leading immediately to:
  • Questions and Open Discussion, which we will try to keep concise, before:
  • Refreshments and general discussion in smaller groups.
We are also hoping to run some facilitated discussions on specific topics which will be written up and published on the website. These will have a chairman/facilitator and a secretary taking notes.
