Making events accessible
Planning the event: Developing the agenda
The agenda should build in:
- for each item
- for discussion
- to move between rooms
- for breaks – ideally – every 45 minutes.
- short presentations and feedback sessions
- a draft set of ground rules for everyone to agree on
Try not to have a difficult session straight after a break. I take medication during breaks and it can take up to half an hour for the medication to settle down.
Do not plan too many things in one meeting and put the most important things at the top of the agenda.
