Broadcaster Roundtable – Hosted by VREAL
January 25 @ 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.
SOBA is entering its fourth year as a community and we believe this is a prime time to explore that very topic. As we enter another month of dialogue, let’s explore community as a community! With the industries and spaces we occupy, we are either directly or indirectly responsible for crafting and managing our communities. Why do we seek communities? What are we doing to find them? How do we know communities are working? Alongside these dialogues, let’s also use this as an opportunity to discuss this community. How has SOBA affected you? What’s working for you and what isn’t? Don’t just lend us your voices and thoughts, come and join us in crafting and supporting the future of this community. Let’s not only continue to foster a supportive and empowering community, but challenge how we do it.
The event will begin with a short introduction on the goal and premise of the event, along with a shoutout to VREAL for hosting us.
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.
