Roundtable meetings are a chance to openly discuss triumphs and tragedies.
We keep numbers capped to encourage honest discussion and agree that details should not leave the room.
Each meeting has a chair but attendees set their own agenda, ideally beforehand. All those around the table are encouraged to share their own experiences, results and advice. Meetings are informal, friendly, usually take about two hours, the only compulsory part is a good selection of biscuits.
These meetings are where the real work is discussed, the nuts and bolts of the Events world. This is where stuff gets done.
The agenda could include marketing races, recruitment to the events, feedback, stewardship or specific event updates.
Attendees include Fundraisers and Product Leads, or those aspiring to be so.
Seniors meetings are for looking at the bigger picture rather than the detail of individual events.
The agenda may include strategy, evaluations, budgeting or product development. We might discuss staff issues, team structures or, if things get really interesting, data consents.
Book these meetings if you're a Head of Events, Senior Lead, Manager or would like to be.
Roundtable meetings are a great way to develop your career. If you're an aspiring Event Lead or Team Leader please book onto a meeting and select the Development tickbox.
We allow for two development places at each meeting but don't worry, we won't force you to wear a special hat or make the tea.
We usually host Seniors and Fundraisers Roundtables every other month, you can find the details and register for the next meeting below.
