O modelo do evento é baseado em diálogos e grupos de discussões informais (simultâneas) dos quais todos participam, priorizando os temas mais relevantes para seus respectivos negócios.

Tendo em vista a senioridade dos participantes, a troca de ideias se mostra muito proveitosa. Ao estimular o diálogo constante, o formato especial do GRI, aplicado com sucesso em cerca de 20 países, facilita o relacionamento, a geração de novos negócios e o compartilhamento de experiências.
