What can you expect?
From 2:45-4:00pm, Camp OrgOrg will feature an "Open House" of sorts, where you can walk around from table to table in our main hall, popping in on brief or longer discussions and workshops. It's going to be informal, unconference-style, for the most part, and to be honest, I'm not sure how it's all going to go. I hope it will be fun! :)
This is new and exciting (for me, anyway) and I think it has the potential to be an incredibly informative, educational, and invigorating experience. Eeeee!
What kinds of discussions and workshops do we have lined up?
So far, this is what's confirmed:
We help Square, Lyft, Org Org, etc. to build mentorship programs that work! Come learn best practices on finding a mentor/mentee, mentorship etiquette and driving the most effective 1:1's. Bonus: Enter a raffle to win a free 6 month pilot, if your company has >50 employees.
(15-minute presentation, repeated 4 times.)
We'll be talking about concepts from our guidebook of the same title (we'll have plenty of copies to share as give-aways). It will be a lively presentation about our tried and true tips and tricks for running a smooth office renovation project.

And of course, there will be space for more casual meetings so you can say hi to your buddies, new and old.
I always find that when I'm at a conference, I don't have the time I'd like to just casually say hello to people, have a short but deep conversation, or yeah, check my work Slack "just for a sec." My hope is that between the "passing periods" in between sessions and our afternoon of more casual Live Forums, you'll have plenty of time to connect and recharge throughout the day!
See you in a week!
