WOOF! Philosophy and Vision for WOOF! 2021
To create an environment that promotes kind, inspiring and empowering behaviours towards each other. We use the terms “Speaker Team” “Team WOOF!” and “Attendees” as a means to identify who will be doing what, but at WOOF! we are one community so we will strive to create an environment that minimises the “us and them” attitude but promotes “we are all one, and all equally as important as each other” philosophy.
WOOF! is a single-track conference, so we all share the experiences together. We provide table seating to promote a comfortable learning environment as well as arrange the surroundings for socialisation with all the fantastic people present. Many of the speakers & Team WOOF! will sit with attendees during presentations and are accessible throughout the whole event to talk with and answer questions. We do have one reserved table at the front where speakers with upcoming presentations can sit with some of our Team WOOF! Members who are working on managing and organising the stage.
Our goal is to provide one-hour presentations at WOOF! 2021 that involve attendees active participation in addition to listening. So our Speaker Team will find different ways to help bring the learning alive, including some live demonstrations with dogs and people. Prefer to participate less actively? This is great; all our attendees get to choose if and how much they wish to engage.
