Recently, I was asked to lead a roundtable discussion about personal branding for the Baltimore chapter of AmeriCorps alums. A roundtable is a facilitated discussion that gives each participant the maximum amount of group input on a given subject of common interest in a short amount of time. One of the most successful has been the roundtable. The more precise the topic is the more successful it will be. Although it’s good to have a tight and clear focus for a roundtable you do need a broad and wide potential agenda for discussion.
Roundtable presenters should bring targeted questions to pose to others at the table in order to learn from and with those attending. Roundtables are an ideal format for networking and in-depth discussion on a particular topic. Join the CSI for a roundtable discussion targeted toward ACPA members who are interested or involved in advising student activities, clubs and organizations, and fraternities and sororities. Holding small business networking roundtable meetings is a way to accomplish this, which include networking opportunities along with discussion of topics that affect many business operations.
