GALA 2013 Knowledgefest

Inspired by the success of our small-group formats, and supported by the incredible collective intelligence represented at our conferences, GALA is pleased to offer a full morning of roundtable discussions on Wednesday, the final day of the conference. You’ve heard the presentations and seen the PowerPoints; now lend your voice to the conversation and share knowledge on topics that are most important to you. Learn from meaningful conversations with your colleagues from around the world while enjoying the warm Florida sun and ocean breezes as we convene outdoors. (Please dress comfortably and consider sun protection.)

Knowledgefest will enable peer-to-peer learning in an environment structured around topics of interest. The morning will include two sessions of approximately one hour each. Participants will choose their discussion groups by topic. Topics are listed below, plus we will save space for session follow-ups and crowdsourced topics. Each roundtable will be hosted by a discussion facilitator.
