We allot four 30-minute timeslots for presentations and/or discussions. Any un-meetup attendee can provide a lightening presentation to pitch their topic (2min max, no slides) – The proposed topic must relate to the Networking theme. The audience will then vote on the topics that interest them most. This will be fun and engaging, not a simple show-of-hands – even the voting process contains networking.
This event will focus on the techniques of persuasion from a business analyst perspective.

This is a deep dive into specific questions to ask, situations to look for, and methods for engaging executives – all from a business analyst’s perspective and rich in personal stories and experiences.
