EO Forum Meeting Format

Tonight we had our quarterly EO moderator dinner to talk about up coming events, what’s working well and not working well, and any other initiatives. EO is one of the best organizations I’ve ever been involved with when it comes to passionate members, formalized training, and useful structure. If you’ve read Keith Ferrazzi’s latest book, Who’s Got Your Back, you’ll know right away what an EO forum is like. I wanted to share the format of our monthly EO forum:

  • 3:00 – Welcome, confidentiality reminder
  • 3:10 – Monthly updates (seven minutes per person)
  • 4:10 – Lightening round where each person asks one question and everyone else answers in 30 seconds or less
  • 4:40 – Break
  • 4:50 – Presentation on an issue someone is working through
  • 5:40 – Break
  • 5:50 – Presentation on an issue someone is working through
  • 6:40 – Housekeeping and wrap-up
    – Best idea lottery
    – Chapter events update
    – Needs and leads
    – Review upcoming schedule
    – Process review of what did and didn’t work
  • 6:59 – Close

Obviously, that list leaves out a good bit of detail, but the goal is to get an idea of how a peer-to-peer support forum operates. I hope this helps!
