Minutes

DATE Monday 15th October 2012
LOCATION Skype

THOSE PRESENT:
Karem, Kuba, Marsha, Metod, Neil, Scott, Sharon

CHAIR:
Marsha

MINUTES:
Items 1 & 2 Sharon, Items 3 & 4 Metod


Item 1: INSATIABLE

To discuss: THE DETAILS OF INSATIABLE 19.10.12

Neil briefed all members on the details of Insatiable.

The plan is that the morning sessions will be presentations. Then the afternoon session, run by CP will be a series of discussions with barcamp like qualities rather than a full on barcamp. At present, the thought is that there will be 4 or 5 tables, each with a CP member and a group of participants. Each table will be given themes for discussion. The themes will be based on the TED's TEN. The CP members will act as facilitators for the discussion and will be given pens, paper and other materials that the group can use to respond to the themes. Following the discussions, there will be time for each table to feedback to the rest of the group.

The day will start at 9am and the afternoon session will start at 2pm. Neil, Marsha, Metod, Scott and Sharon to take part.

There is a possibility that this format will be taken further afield next year.

Action: NEIL TO TWEET TED'S TEN


Item 2; DEBRIEF ON THE BROKERS WALKS


To discuss: THOUGHTS FOLLOWING THE BROKERS EVENT

Everyone felt that the day was a success.

It was noted that the 3 Brokers each presented a different kind of walk. One was very relaxed and improvised, one was organised and scheduled and one was very prepared. They each addressed the theme of value to varying degrees.

There were logistical problems on the day, we didn't stick to the schedule. This meant that participants became tired and hungry. There is a balance to be struck between being flexible and open to opportunities (such as when we were invited into one of the Inns of Court) and sticking to the schedule for the day that allows for the group to have breaks between speakers.

It was decided that in future iterations of the project, we need to brief the speakers beforehand and warn that there might be a need for flexibility. Also if we have another walk that includes set appointments at various locations, it would be good to have that walk as the first one of the day.

There was a discussion about the knowledge and documentation generated from the day. It was agreed that participants have an ephemeral experience that cannot be captured by documentation however, it was felt that follow up discussions and debates after the event could produce a secondary dialogue which might be interesting. Others felt that there wasn't a need to 'do' anything or to capture every second of the day and that the experience of the day was enough. Everyone agreed that there were memories made on the day that will stay with us.

2 questions seem to come out of the day

  • 1 Should we have further events? When? Should we consider a winter walk? We could do some indoor walks which would be different challenges.
  • 2 What is our team ethic? Where are we heading to with this? What knowledge was produced during the walks? What shall we do with it?

The group were in agreement that we should do some more walks and see what emerges.

It was also decided that a full debrief would need more time and that a date should be set when we can sit down and really go over what happened on the day and where to take things from here.

Action: KAREM TO START A DOODLE THAT IDENTIFIES A DATE WHEN WE CAN MEET IN PERSON TO DEBRIEF IN FULL.
