Talk Story Time

Industry visitors to Hawaii provide an opportunity for a “talk story” time. Attendees will be treated to learn from the experiences of our visitor in a small group (20 maximum) setting, which will facilitate and encourage discussion.

The notice for each session will include the speaker’s bio, and suggested topics and questions for discussion. While there is no cost, there is a requirement in order to sign up. When registering for a “talk story” session, each attendee will be required to provide a question(s) for the speaker. We believe having questions in advance will provide our visitor with a good idea of the interest of the attendees, resulting in a more worthwhile and productive session.

Takeaways:
– Learn from the pros
– Lessons our visitor has learned throughout their career
