Marilyn, all,

I would be very supportive of such an approach. Large setups like the
breakfast are always likely to be dominated by few persons which is
not necessarily bad but certainly does not serve the main purpose of
this meeting which I always viewed to be a good opportunity to get to 
know each other better and exchange ideas. Unfortunally exactly this does
not really happen. In light of this the idea of breaking up into smaller
groups seems to be a good one. Maybe we should even consider (and I have
to admit that this is a very very selfish suggestion ;)) to move the meeting 
from the early morning to lunch time. Afterall not all people are early
birds and trying to interact with someone half asleep (i.e. myself) isn't 
really productive.

Have a pre-set few table topics. We need to focus on devlop'g relationships with BD Mmbrs. ... The approach we are using in the bkft doesn't advance true dialogue.
