How it works

Log in at the start time. If you’re late, I’m afraid we can’t wait.

Your host will send you to a breakout room where you will meet 1 or 2 other people, at random, for 5 minutes.

Introduce yourself, share the time, make notes for follow up.

Your host will bring you back to the main room and send you to another break out room where you will meet another 1 or 2 people at random, for 5 minutes.

We do this 7 times, so you will meet at least 7 people.

Jump on LinkedIn after the meeting to add your contact details to the Arts and Culture Network LinkedIn Group and follow up with the people you met.
