We have been running CLS now for over five years and the event continues to be well recieved and well attended. We are though, always keen to improve and refine how the event is organized to make it as useful as possible.
For this year’s event (see http://communityleadershipsummit.com/ for more details) I am interested in making the following changes:
Some people have expressed that some means of categorizing sessions would be useful. As such, I think it would be useful to have stickers with session categories that can be applied to each session to make it clearer what topics the session is covering, whether it will be technical etc.
The plenaries seemed pretty well recieved, so we will do them again this time around. I am interesting in hearing whether the lightning talks are of interest to people.
We will start day 2 a little later as people often arrive late (no doubt due to having plenty o’fun at the social event).
We often talk about the best way of taking notes. I think it could be useful to have a topic on this forum for each session where the first post are the session conclusions. This then means a discussion can continue. We could then just have a category for each CLS (e.g.
CLS 2014) so you can see all the session notes in one place.
What other feedback do you folks have for us to improve and refine the event?
