Rapporteurs

Meet your rapporteurs!

As you cannot be in all sessions at once, each core session will be led by a dedicated Rapporteur and Co-Rapporteur, whose responsibility it will be to shape the session and to communicate all tangible lernings from their discussions in the following two formats: 

1. Summarising key lessons learned verbally during post-session feedback loops in front of the entire event audience

2. Collating detailed notes from their sessions in a chapter of the Rapporteur's Report, which will be published post-event and distrubuted to attendees. The report is a resource you can benefit from all year, even if you did not attend all of the sessions
