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.
