Presentation: "Panel: Talking Teams and Fielding Your Questions"

Time: Wednesday 16:50 - 17:50

Location: Salon C


This session will be an audience driven fishbowl discussion. Instead of listening to panelists ramble on and on, the audience will submit questions that the panel discusses in the fishbowl. After 5 minutes, the audience will decide (by voting) whether they want to hear more on the current question or move on. We welcome your hardest question and toughest challenges. The session is a forum for open discussion around the realities and tools needed to form and maintain teams that building the right thing, the right way.
