Goal of the Agenda
Since the Campfire events are only 55 min - an hour long, time needs to be rationed out precisely. You need to have a good balance between content from the speaker and interactive activities. The agenda should be sent to the speaker, so that he/she has an idea of how long they should be speaking. There should always be someone to help the host out, by keeping track of time and notifying them if they are using up too much time on a single agenda item.
