At Oregon State University we have begun using variations on the "speed dating" model (just another name for structured networking) in a wide variety of settings. Sessions in conferences and workshops, whether keynote addresses, panels, or town hall meetings, share a common characteristic: one person at a time speaks, and everyone else is expected to listen.What if you could talk to a dozen experts and get all your questions answered in one night?Getting to know the mentors and startup community at the same time?Farmers and chefs used a more classic speed dating approach to forge new relationships and make deals.
Admit it--you wish your workshops and conferences were livelier.
At the close of the CV review sessions, mentors and mentees were asked to complete workshop evaluations.
