On April 11, 2019, the women of ZWIN “speed-networked.” Sitting at tables of four, members shared about their business for one minute each. After all four had spoken and they’d allowed a couple minutes for questions, it was time for the next round. To organize who stayed at each table and who moved to another one, women had to “follow the dots.” How? Each tabletop held four colored paper circles–one pink, one red, one blue, and one yellow. Each person chose a colored dot. The member with the pink dot automatically became the table captain. She would stay at that table the whole time. For each future round, the member with the red dot moved to the next table, the member with the blue dot moved over two tables, and the member with the yellow dot moved over three tables. This “musical-table” game worked well, allowing members to interact with a large cross-section of the group.
