Why this fishbowl format is so darn effective:
Fishbowl Format: The "Fishbowl" format is often used in various group discussions and events. It typically involves a group of people, some of whom are actively participating while others observe. In the context of this event, it signifies the coaching and discussion format where a few individuals receive coaching while the rest of the participants observe. This mirrors the way people might watch fish in a fishbowl, hence the term "Fishbowl."
Transparency and Visibility: Fishbowls are often transparent containers, allowing people to see everything that's happening inside. In the context of the event, this term might symbolize the transparency of the coaching process, where the participants and the coaches openly share insights and advice, making the learning process visible to all.
Community Engagement: Fishbowls often serve as a platform for community engagement, with participants actively participating and sharing their experiences. In the event, the term "Fishbowl" might signify the active involvement of the entire community, even when not directly participating in the coaching sessions.
- Expert Advice: Imagine having two speaking coaches by your side and answering your questions, going through the audience's situation and offering speaking wisdom to help you speak with greater confidence and influence.
