Making Quality Connections

Randomized Coffee Trials

Participants had many opportunities to make connections and meet new people during the Forum’s main two days, but sometimes it helps to have a friendly introduction to start things off! For Quality Forum 2019, we offered the option to sign up for our Randomized
Coffee Trials (RCTs). RCTs have been used in many organizations to build relationships and provide opportunities to connect and collaborate, by pairing
participants at random and asking them to schedule a 30-minute time slot to get together and talk about whatever they like.

Mealtime Match-Ups

A limited number of matches were available to provide unique networking opportunities for small groups of participants to connect with a mentor on one of the topics below. These match-ups took place during breakfast and lunch on Thursday to allow for informal interaction and discussion.

Participants were paired with another Forum participant and matched with a mentor for their chosen topic area. Check out the topics available for mentorship below!
