Breakout Sessions at the Sandton Convention Centre
On Saturday, the Summit’s final day, delegates broke into smaller groups, for which they have pre-registered, based on special interests. In response to feedback last year, the Breakout Sessions aligned with each Plenary Session topic. These Sessions were developed and led by Ambassadors and delegates who are active in the respective areas in order to foster productive workgroups and lasting connections. The remainder of Saturday’s Breakouts, which will be hosted by Counsellors and other experts, are largely focused on delivering practical advice and useful tools.
