Event Details

Featured speaker:
Mr. Kavie Toor, Board of Governors Staff Representative; Managing Director of Athletics & Recreation 

Let’s meet over lunch with colleagues from across UBC and share thoughts about how we might work toward the goal of establishing richer and more meaningful networks.

 Dear  colleagues,

We have missed seeing you all of you!  As we won't be able to meet in person as a group for awhile, we thought let's try meeting online with Zoom conferencing.

We are very appreciative of Kavie's flexibility and trying this format for our first virtual Hot Lunch. We are looking forward to hearing more about his new appointment as Managing Director of Athletics and & Recreation and about his staff representative role on the UBC Board of Governors.  Not that Kavie is new to UBC, he has over 20 years of UBC experience and has been putting the thunder in the UBC Thunderbirds brand for awhile! He has been involved in many projects at UBC, including the lead role in the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic games.

Menu:  whatever is cooking in your kitchen at home!
Virtual Hot Lunch Schedule

  • Our Hot Lunch Host and Steering Committee member, Ms. Eilis Courtney, will open the session and introduce our speaker.  All other participant microphones will be muted from the Host’s dashboard (3 minutes)
  •  Our guest speaker will present for approximately 10 minutes. During his talk, participants may ask questions in the sidebar discussion box for response at a later point.
  • After the presentation, our Zoom moderator will put registrants into virtual “breakout rooms” where people can catch up and chat amongst themselves (simulating a real table). Hosts will be placed in different rooms to help facilitate conversation. (10 minutes)
  • After 10 minutes, our  Hot Lunch Host and Zoom moderator will invite everyone back into the main chat and we will ask our speaker to answer questions generated from a) the chat box b) the breakout room sessions and/or c) live questions. (20 minutes)
    * Participants will have the option to raise their hands virtually as well.

Registration is free and you will have an opportunity to suggest table topics when registering. Registrants will receive the link for the Zoom Virtual Hot Lunch session by noon the day prior (April 28).

We are looking forward to seeing you!
