Baldati

Destination:

“Ask the expert” is a program where we host experts in their fields and narrow audience to engage in a fruitful and interesting discussion,

Main Program’s objective:

To activate discussions among Lebanese interested citizens and experts in different fields targeting sustainable development or current important and forthcoming issues.

It is a way to revive traditional Cultural Salon in a high-tech environment.

 

Methodology:

-          As a preparation for the session, a promotional campaign (emails-website-media-SMS…)  is set to attract interested stakeholders and an online forum is started on Baldati.com so people can ask the guest their questions and engage in online e-dialogue

-          The sessions are audio recorded then after edited and uploaded on Baldati.com for public to stream online.

-          A press release is afterwards sent to the media.

-          Guests are selected according to their field of expertise and according to the “hot” subjects of the hour whether on political, cultural, economical or social levels.

-          Attendees are usually interested stakeholders, journalists and Baldati members.

-          The sessions are open for all to attend.
