Lean Coffee

Lean Coffee is your chance to have a structured but informal chat with fellow delegates about the topics you’re most interested in.

In the session, you’ll work with each other to democratically set an agenda for a group discussion.

We’ll have a few different rooms divided by topics for discussion. You’ll pick a room based on a topic you’re interested in talking about.

Once everyone has chosen a room, the discussion is conducted as follows:

  1. Everyone in each room thinks of a few things they would like to discuss around the topic and writes each idea on a post-it note.
  2. The group reviews each idea, working to group together similar topics, clarify any unclear post-its and de-duplicate.
  3. Everyone gets to vote on the ideas they would like to discuss most.
  4. The top prioritised item gets 5 minutes discussion.
  5. At the end of each 5 minute segment, the group votes whether to stay with the current topic or move to the next-most popular topic.
