No two questions
the same

People come to the Brain Exchange for different reasons. Some want to take the hot seat and place a problem before their fellow members. Others come out of curiosity, to share their experiences and hear the opinions of others. The issues discussed at the Brain Exchange are typical of those facing senior management in today's business environment.

Events run for two hours and involve up to ten people. Each event includes a 60 minute moderated discussion. So time at the Brain Exchange is time well spent.
