I attend a lot of meetings which are public, and some are private. However in some meetings, some meetings use the Chatham House Rule to encourage openness and sharing of information. If a meeting is under Chatham House Rule this will be mentioned either in the publicity for or at the beginning of the event, and if so, I will state this in my entry.
The Chatham House Rule reads as follows:
“When a meeting, or part thereof, is held under the Chatham House Rule, participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed”.
For an explanation of the Rule and frequently asked questions, click here.
I do my best to blog openly about the exciting people I meet and to share with you, my followers, but I must also respect the people I meet, especially when I am bound by Chatham House Rule. With respect for the rule, I will not publish the discussions or responses of the speaker during any ‘Question and Answer’ sessions.
