NEW! Braindate has arrived at RSA Conference.

Braindate imageFor many attendees, networking and peer-to-peer learning are an invaluable part of RSAC. And now with Braindate—one of our new offerings within the RSAC Engagement Zone—it’s easier than ever to find and have meaningful conversations with others who share your interests.

What is a Braindate?
Braindates are meetups focused on topics proposed by RSAC 2020 attendees with a Full Conference Pass that will be in the form of one-on-one or small-group conversations of up to seven people. Braindates enable you to tap into the vast knowledge of you and your peers, allowing you to crowdsource learning experiences from thousands of attendees. At the same time, it offers a more intimate, personalized way to connect with others about subject matters that you feel passionate about. 

How do I access Braindate? (Opt in required)
If you’d like to access and use Braindate, you are first required to opt in through the RSAC 2020 registration system. This ensures you have provided consent to pass your information from our event registration system to the Braindate app.

How does Braindate work?
We’ll be sharing new details on how to use the Braindate platform to build your schedule prior to and during Conference. In the meantime, here are a few points to help you understand how Braindate works:

  • You will be able to browse the topics market to see what topics are available for discussion and find subject matter that’s most relevant to you.
  • Or you can use the topic generator to create topics for 1:1 or small-group conversations.
  • You will also have access to a personal folder to view invitations you have sent or received, and for confirmed braindates.
  • Once you reserve a braindate, it will populate in My Schedule available through the RSA Conference website or the mobile app (the mobile app will be available approximately two weeks prior to RSAC 2020). You can also see if another attendee’s schedule is open at the time you are looking to schedule a braindate.
  • You will meet onsite at RSAC 2020 in the Braindate Lounge inside the RSAC Engagement Zone.

What topics should I share?
Everyone has valuable insights to share—no matter what your experience or background. To help jump start topic ideas, consider the following questions:

  • What are some of your best practices for problem solving?
  • What do peers come to you for advice about?
  • What challenges have you worked through that others can benefit from?
  • What personal rituals have improved your life and work?
  • What industry trends do you find most fascinating—or worrisome?
