We kicked off with a pilot in May. This allowed us to test the technology and set up our editing process.
Our first Connectle Con kicked off at the end of May. Ayelet was brave enough to be our first Host and kick off the conversation on Corporate Burnout. This was how the circle format was born.
Working Out Loud in large organisations - a subject we were familiar with. We learned we wanted diverse perspectives.

Back to the circle format and people from different backgrounds. We learned we needed to have a designated host. This was the first time we introduced listeners into the conversation - using a webinar format.
Ayelet hosted our Beyond Yoga at Work conversation. We were more comfortable using the webinar format and questions and answers from listeners.

Perry led the Transforming HR conversation. We had a format that was working - with a circle of speakers from across the globe.
Susan led the Self-Organising teams conversation. We introduced speakers from the audience towards the end of the conversation. This is now part of the format. We also found a need to open a cafe at the end of the conversation, so audience members could mingle and continue the discussion. This is something that is being introduced in 2018.

Connectle Con 2017 Curators/Hosts 🏆
Connectle Con 2017 Speakers 🏆
Circles are not new to Connectle. Throughout 2016 and 2017, we have hosted a variety of open, private and secret circles. In our move towards a more self-organised network, we have now eliminated the time-intensive facilitated coaching circles and will focus on Check-in Circles for virtual coworking and Cocreation Circles to connect shared purpose.
Taking what we have learned from facilitated working out loud circles, virtual coworking sessions and the agile community; check-in circles provide a way for members to practice connected work in a virtual coworking cafe. With set check-in times, members are encouraged to drop-in to the Cafe and share their work.
Cocreation circles connect people by shared purpose and desired outcomes. These private virtual spaces, use our learnings from our work with Communities of Practice and social action, to connect people and contributions across the ecosystem.
As we scale up the conversations, we need more speakers. Speakers are professionals wanting to explore a particular topic within a series.
This is not a role reserved for experts and innovators. Our favourite speakers have been those willing to listen and those that share authentic stories.
Relearn the art of conversation. Learn from diverse perseptives. Connect with a series circle and get truly involved in the conversation.
As part of the 2018 series launch, we are introducing the role of curator into our network.
Curators produce/coproduce a series of Connectle Cons. They are responsible for concocting the chemistry of a conversation. Selecting the combinations of speakers, guiding the hosts and developing the narrative for the series.
Working within the series circles, curators are guardians of the circle charter, ensuring a drumbeat and inviting members into the conversation.
Partners are a new role in the Connectle ecosystem. We aim to work with each partner organisation to form a mutually beneficial collaborative engagement.
Partners are encouraged to be creative in their contribution to the ecosystem. Not only do they provide much needed financial support, which allows the network to remain inclusive and free for our members, but they are encouraged to be actively collaborating and cocreating the conversations and outcomes they need to embed connected work in their own environments.
