VES Summit 2012 Roundtables

Continental Breakfast Round Tables 8:30-10:00am

As the Breakfast Round Tables were such a big hit last year, these discussions will again jump start the morning at this year's Summit. This aspect of the Summit will be for those attendees who want to discuss and share information on a particular subject with their fellow attendees over breakfast. Each table will have a moderator who is an expert in their topic. You will have a chance to sit in on two tables as everyone can switch tables mid way. The objective is for everyone to join in on the discussion, glean new information and suggest possible solutions. A time for attendees to do the talking.


Please sign up for a particular topic when you register.
