The format we currently use came from a few experimental events last year; we’ve now settled on a mixture of presentation, guest interview, group exercises and lively discussion. Events usually fill a week or two before the session, with a maximum capacity of 30.
JOT is not a networking event – that implies people go there primarily to develop new business opportunities (and sell). You’ll certainly meet and connect with some interesting people, but if you do attend please leave your business development hat at home!
These events are really facilitated discussions around personal development. They help us learn more about ourselves, stimulating an interest in self-improvement which will have an impact in our work and personal lives.
