SUMMIT LABORATORY SESSIONS
MBAs conduct experimental ‘lab sessions’ – lectures, workshops, ‘talk-shops’ or ‘think-tanks’ designed to inspire and incite intense discussion and best-practice-sharing. These speakers have complete control over the creative direction of their proposed topics, which are screened, selected and then refined by the organizing committee prior to the Summit.
These Laboratory sessions are used to share knowledge and incubate emerging ideas during the Summit. The sessions can be used to educate other attendees in a field of study that the session leader has expertise in. Or used to challenge other attendees so that the session leader can get feedback to benefit solving a problem of their own.
Workshops – A practical hands on session designed to challenge other attendees to tackle business problems or obstacles
Talkshops – A seminar which can be used to educate other attendees in a field of work
Thinktanks – An engaging forward-thinking session, where ideation and the creation of new ways of thinking are promoted
Speeches – The flexibility in the laboratory sessions permits them to be as creative as the attendee feels is necessary, making the possibility of something as straight forward as a speech feel much more appealing
Life Lessons – As many of the attendees of the summit will have much corporate experience, life lessons are also a key option of the Laboratory sessions as they encourage likeminded thinkers to learn from each other
