Un-Meeting Format

The Un-Meeting format, which is without the rules and structure of a traditional conference, provides a unique opportunity for attendees to focus on what really matters to them, as they drive the agenda and resulting discussions. A series of brief 4×4 presentations (4 slides in 4 minutes) help set the stage for discussion. Attendees then identify topics they want to discuss and write them down on sticky notes, which are organized by event coordinators into logical categories. These categories become the breakout session topics, with four concurrent breakouts anticipated per session. Visit the CLIC website to explore the Un-Meeting concept in more detail, or check out an example of a past Un-Meeting.
