Our first MeetUp of the year was a success with 16 in attendance. We used a revised “Lean Coffee” format to find the topic interest and get to know each other better. Everyone chose two topics of interest and had two topic votes. The topics with the most votes were chosen for table conversation. We broke out into groups of four to discuss the chosen topic. Each group had to choose a captain to keep time. Everyone had five minutes to talk on the topic and at the end, the group captain had to share their group conversation takeaway.

Here’s the list of topics from this meeting. We will be addressing them here on our blog and on our Facebook Group.
