Will Ferrell On What To Expect From A Web of Change Session

When Will Ferrell says, “It’s provocative. It gets the people going.” -- he could easily be talking about a Web of Change session. (He’s actually talking about Lady Humps by the Black Eyed Peas). But I digress.

My point is that we come to Web of Change expecting kick ass content that’s going to make us think big, be more effective and get real with each other about what’s working at the intersection of technology and social change -- and what’s not.
That’s why this year, we are trying something new to make WOC sessions even more provocative and more actionable (Watch out, Will!).  Enter in the session mentor.
What’s a Session Mentor?
With a month to go until the gathering, each person leading a WOC 2013 session has been paired up with a mentor -- a successful past WOC mischief-maker/content conduit.
The mentor is helping the session lead workshop his or her idea to make it as juicy as possible for Web of Change participants to dig into and discuss.
Each lead is meeting several times prior to the event with the mentor so they are fully prepared to deliver thought-provoking content and facilitate deep discussion amongst participants based on that content.
In a nutshell, every session now has an expert and an editor.
Getting Better Together
The Web of Change community is better when we work together.  The session mentor idea was hatched during an Advisory Committee meeting held last spring when a team of volunteers challenged ourselves to improve the Web of Change experience.
It’s an experiment for sure – but one we think is worthwhile.
If you have any idea that you would like to add to make Web of Change stronger, please constructively share it in comments here. This is your community too.
Onwards to Web of Change 2013!
