interactive activities to get hands on with the content. Skill building topics
a plus.

throughout the event. The networking leader will work with the conference team
to plan an activity (morning group run, morning yoga, cooking class, afternoon
run, art class). The more creative the better. There is no presentation
involved. Just be ready to lead the activity and help attendees connect to each
other in a fun non-conference setting. All ideas welcome!
