E-Discovery Fun and Networking
Since we're still a little less likely and able to connect in person still, we decided to bring the fun networking and social activities online with two great trivia events.
Virtual Trivia Hunt: Who's the smartest e-discovery group of friends?
Starting at 3pm EDT/ 12pm EDT, you and your e-discovery friends can compete to see how smart your team is outside the world of e-discovery. Answer 20 questions correctly in the shortest amount of time compared to other teams competing, and you'll split the prize pool of $500 generously donated by FTI Consulting with your team.
There are no rules about how you find answers in Trivia Hunt! You can use the internet, Shazam, your uncle, etc. Get a group together, and be ready to go on December 3!
Here’s an example of a question that could be asked in this Trivia Hunt:
What moon of Uranus shares its name with a film that was released nationally in the US on the same day as Star Wars: The Last Jedi?
Can you get the answer? Go ahead and use all the research materials and friends you can find. Want to practice? Check out the recap and questions from our latest hunt.
Virtual E-Discovery Family Feud: Join a Team, Win Prizes!
We're mixing it up with our final event on E-Discovery Day, starting at 6pm EDT/3pm PDT. Our Virtual E-Discovery Family Feud is a survey-based game that is great for everyone, not just e-discovery brainiacs! Teams try to guess the most popular responses given to fun e-discovery survey questions. It’s not a test of your knowledge, it’s a chance to correctly guess what your peers are thinking. The smartest team doesn’t always win!
Meet new e-discovery friends by participating in this fun event! More details below:
- Participants will randomly be put into teams so that you can expand your e-discovery network.
- The winning team will get an amazing, secret prize sponsored by Consilio!
- The session will last 60 minutes with 30 minutes after for additional networking and prize giveaways.
