CCAC CoffeeTalks

What are Coffee Talks?

Coffee Talks are intimate conversations in which 1-4 participants can meet with a subject matter expert for the length of time it would take to have a cup of coffee (typically 20-30 minutes).

They are the perfect opportunity for those: 
  • Seeking to learn more from a speaker they've just heard at an event.  
  • Who have a project that requires specific advice from someone who has the experience of doing a similar project.
  • Wanting to know more about a topic before deciding whether it is something they would like to delve into.

How does the NBEN engage a Subject Matter Expert (SME)?

The NBEN draws from its past speakers as well as members of its collaboratives and caucuses, and will also brainstorm potential topics of interest through its Steering Committee. Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) who have volunteered time to a Coffee Talk in the list will change over the course of the year based on the SMEs availability.
