What is a dialogue circle?

AMBAQ’s dialogue circles are groups of members who meet once a month to share and discuss their expertise and experience on a specific theme that is central to their professional development. More specifically, a discussion circle involves:

  • Groups of 20 participants in good standing of AMBAQ;
  • Information confidentiality;
  • A monthly meeting (fixed day set by the group);
  • A fixed location (determined by the group members);
  • A meeting length of 1 to 2 hours;
  • No fees, given that the dialogue circles are included in AMBAQ membership dues (except meals, if applicable);
  • The possibility of adding new participants (conditional on the consensus of the group).

 

How to participate in a dialogue circle

Feel free to contact the coordinator directly if you are interested in participating in a dialogue circle.
