Networking : Reflection and Integration
Lisa Friedman, Co-founder, Enterprise Development Group; Member, Foundation for Global Community
Herman Gyr, Co-founder, Enterprise Development Group; Member, Foundation for Global Community

The Forum is often experienced as a tremendously stimulating time of new insight and learning. These networking sessions will provide a chance to "take a breath" and reflect on the day's events, to deepen and take in the experiences of the day. This session has two goals: to enable the participants to integrate what they have learned, and consider the implications of this learning for their day to day lives; and to learn about events occurring throughout the Forum to help connect to the Forum as a whole.

(For additional information regarding networking activities and to locate rooms for informal meetings, the Forum has established a Community Center located in the Hunt Room at the Fairmont Hotel. Please check the Community Center for the most updated schedule of organized networking activities.)
