Hope you’re enjoying your weekend so far! I thought I’d share with you the agenda for the dinner, and what Edgeryder’s role will be
So, this is how we’re planning on doing it:
2. 5 min intro by UNDP
3. Call with Edgeryders begins
So we thought it would be interesting to have you present for the opening circle so you can have an idea of what the attendees are doing and who they are. Basically each person will introduce themselves and what they’re doing in social innovation in one sentence.
Then you guys will tell us Edgeryder’s story, including success stories so that people can get to know you; attendees will have the chance to ask you questions and you will then get their feedback on how they think Edgeryder’s can be effective in Egypt.
Finally, we also feel it is important that you give them a brief description of how to use the Edgeryder’s platform for Spot the Future.
4. Skype call ends
5. Open Space: we will set up three rooms one for ‘share your initiative’, ‘caring for commons’ and ‘making a living’. Attendees will go to whichever room they prefer to and engage in general discussions.
6. Individual Harvest - We will ask them to sign up on Edgeryders and share the ideas they came up with during the dinner We will set up a laptop station in each room so they can at least sign up on the platform there.
7. Closing Circle
The whole idea is to introduce the social innovators to Edgeryders on a direct and personal level, and this will be done best by you of course!! No one can ever tell your story better than you will! If the evening is successful and we were able to get them really interested, they will definitely be motivated enough to join the community and continue the discussions online by their own choice!
I hope one (or more) of you will have enough time on Monday - it probably won’t take more than 30 mins! We’re planning on moving fast and for everything to be brief and to the point as possible. I really think this dinner will also be a great opportunity for you to get a sense of what some the innovators community is like in Egypt and for you guys to have a chat. There will definitely be lots of interesting people!
Let me know what you think
