More dinners with strangers

University of Toronto is ready for another season of its great “Dinner with 12 Strangers” program and I’m gearing up for a din of my own.

“The premise: sit down to dinner with 12 strangers; get up with 12 new friends”

The University’s alumni office offers the program. Come forward to host an evening and they provide the students and a co-host (faculty, alumni and other member of the university community).

I did 2 of these dinners last year (see previous post) and enjoyed each one of them tremendously. The students are bright, engaged, informed and a pleasure to chat with. I invited friends to help co-host and they got as much out of it as the students did.

Sign up now

They group the dates for more effective marketing so join in for:

  • Round 1 from September 18 – October 25, 2010
  • Round 2 November 3, 2010 and run through winter holiday (which starts Dec. 22 and ends January 2)
  • Round 3 will start in February, 2011 and will end in late March
