We start by holding an Arc Fusion dinner to explore the question or theme we have collaboratively selected.
These provocative evenings convene key leaders in health, IT, biomedicine, and other fields who are vital to the conversation. Alongside the discussion, there may be cutting-edge talks by experts, plus music, dance, or theater to prime the senses for a deep-dive, multi-disciplinary conversation.
Inspired by U.S. President Thomas Jefferson - who liked to solve problems over a meal with smart people - attendees are divided into small tables where Table Talk Leaders guide conversations.
IDEO and Arc Fusion
At each table, a member of the IDEO team will be present to help facilitate, guide, and capture the ensuing conversation; this can take the form of content, behavior, or observational notes. These materials will later be referenced for the Inform and Build phases of the process.
