Principles for curating Adelaide Connected events

1. We bring together people from different professions and industries to network and learn outside the narrow confines of the professional memberships and groups they subscribe to.

2. We attract a highly diverse audience by presenting a program with themes that have seriously broad appeal. Examples can be around high profile initiatives, sweeping trends, impactful personal development, techniques that really work, human factors, strategy and insight topics, etc.

3. We ensure there is planned time and exercises to facilitate effective networking. We may use ice breakers, speed dating, match making, workshops, etc.

4. We offer (max) 3 presenters who are entertaining and or reputable (preferably both). We may bring the presenters together in a panel discussion. We may add (max) 2 additional panelists if that adds value.

5. We may include (max) 1 presenter from a platinum sponsor, with the condition that principle 4 still applies.

6. We ensure that at least one presenter delivers an interactive session that engages and activates the audience.
