An expert in a field gives an in-depth presentation about a specific topic with 20-30 participants. Masterclasses give participants the chance to have a focused learning experience and interact with experts and a small group. The sessions can range from presentation-style to interactive.
A host leads a discussion with 8-10 participants around a specific topic for 60 minutes. Typically the topic will be introduced in short verbal presentation by the host following a discussion among all participants. This format is highly conversational and perfect for learning from each other and networking with other participants and thought leaders.
