Round Tables

Round Tables are used to bring together a variety of stakeholder groups together in a working atmosphere.  Unlike a hearing the groups aim to share perspectives and come to conclusions about management options.  Because heated debates are common in these settings it is useful to have a moderator, or someone to control the atmosphere, and direct the debates in a productive manner.  The moderator needs to be someone with no direct interest in the outcome.
