[1] Speakers are not always necessary but in some cases can help stimulate discussion.

[2] Though attendance should be sufficient to provide the ‘critical mass’ required to make the event a success, maximising numbers is not always desirable, especially if it excludes some from participating; a balance should be struck between quantity and quality.

[3] How many people do you think you can attract through personal contact or organisational networks?

[4] Which bodies, organisations or networks are helping you plan the event and attract attendance?

[5] In order both to boost attendance (if required) and to enable members of the public to attend, do you have any plans to publicise the event more widely?

[6] In order to avoid overflow or for security reasons, will you require members of the public to register in advance and, if so, are you able to make the appropriate arrangements?

[7] The less technology the better as a rule but it may sometimes be necessary.

[8] Do you need help with any of the above – or anything else?
