Broadcaster Roundtable – Hosted by Gawkbox
November 30, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The SOBA Roundtable is a guided discussion forum, meant for members of our community to have more in-depth, personal conversations about topics that matter to them. Our goal is to provide a comfortable and organized environment for moderated discussion. Facilitating a professional atmosphere can help people express their thoughts in a manner better-suited for exchanging ideas. Our hope is that sharing knowledge will help participants grow and provide insight for ways SOBA can continue to help members succeed. Understand that these Roundtables are limited by the experience, strengths, and hopes of the dialogues brought to them. What topics are brought up, engaged with, and learned are up to the curiosity and ambitious of its attendees.
This event starts at 6 PM, but official roundtable discussions begin at 6:30. Food will be provided.
Curious about Content? In our industry content continues to be diverse and complex even if our platforms or mediums are similar. Being a content creator is often not as straightforward as picking up a popular game and people watching you, so being critical and growing that skill is valuable mindset to develop. With such a diverse community, we look forward to engaging each other and workshopping what content means for you and how you develop your content. Whether your medium is scary games, competitive esports, speed running, casual, cooking, DnD, music, etc. To cite the Japanese philosophy of Ikigai developing a reason for being that includes what you love, what you’re good at, what the world wants, and what you can be paid for is a journey and life skill. So, come join us for an evening dedicated to exploring what content to craft, how to develop it, look into what has been working for yourself, and others.
The event will begin with a short introduction on the goal and premise of the event, alongside a shoutout to Gawkbox for hosting us(if Gawkbox staff would like to take the floor to tell our members about your company and mission we would love to handover the mic).
A brainstorming session will begin as members come to the venue, as they are to write topics on notecards and then as a group put tallies on the topics, to help highlight topics that many members would like to discuss. The votes and topics will be posted on a wall or somewhere with good visibility for the groups or facilitators.
The Roundtable will break out into 2 discussion sessions with a 15-minute break at the middle and a collaboration/debrief at the end. Groups will be broken up, hopefully six or fewer per group, or simply manageable levels for the group members and facilitators to encourage and harbor group discussion about the themes and branch out topics (Alterations will be made to accommodate conversations and number of attendees).
