So, what is a Drive by, Zoom by?

Unlike traditional conferences, a Drive by, Zoom by is a made up of presentations that are only 10 minutes long. There will be a 7 minute presentation with an allowance of 3 minutes for questions. There are a series of speakers over different topics. At the end of all of the presentations there will be additional time for open discussion and additional questions. 

Check out this video for further explanation of this concept!

Who will be in attendance?

Representatives from:

  • 2 year colleges
  • 4 year private and public institutions
  • Recruiters from small to large organizations
  • Local economic development groups

What's the value proposition?

We’ve all been in that conference, you know the one, in which expert after expert stands up in front of the room, clicks through presentation slides and drones on and on about a particular topic. Yes, some of these speakers are entertaining, some are monotone, and most you do learn from, however, other than the few minutes of Q & A at the end of each presentation, there’s not much time to really discuss and explore the topics. This can really be a waste of valuable resources, since there are usually several meeting participants in attendance that have great first-hand knowledge to share, interesting and engaging questions to explore, and some even with expert knowledge that can shed light on the topics.

So the question becomes, how do we tap into all the knowledge, energy and experience of these conference participants? Planning an Drive by, Zoom by is the most successful and proven way to enable a great participant-driven meeting. At an Drive by, Zoom by, the agenda is created by participant suggestions.
