Campfire Sessions – Round 1

What is a campfire?... It starts like any other panel or discussion, with a speaker or panel presenting a topic to the room. The focus then shifts from the presenters to the audience and the presenters’ become hosts and facilitators, inviting questions, comments, and experience sharing from the room.

The aim is to create a real dialogue around the topic, and true engagement in the process. The session will end with the compilation of some key takeaways and some goals for the next 12 months that could be revisited at the next RESi360/BTR360 edition.

This is your opportunity to contribute ideas, experience, and solutions to some of the biggest issues facing the industry currently, so prepare to share during this dynamic session.
