Unlocking the Morris Code for Communications and Networking Success

OK so it is not the Da Vinci code and I am not Tom Hanks, however, getting to really meet the most people in the shortest amount of time is a major key to solving the networking puzzle. 
The scene:
At a recent meeting of a senior management organization, we unveiled the Morris Code.
The rules:
Assign seats so that no one sits at a table with the same person twice.
Answer 4 or 5 questions about yourself, your business and your hobbies/life. (3 minutes per person)
Discuss a unique business or political topic (never discuss the same topic more than once) with the other table participants and come to a consensus/opinion as a group. (1-2 minutes person to encourage all to speak)
Select a scribe/presenter to regale the room with your consensus/opinions. (2-3 minutes to present)
The results:
With 4-5 people per table, in 60-75 minutes, each person meets, interacts and learns about the business and personal life, the conversation and group participation style and the public speaking capabilities of 12-15 guests. 
Careful planning, doing the math on table assignment and the question generation, creates the foundation for a successful meeting.  A critical factor is the size of the crowd and that the scheduled attendees show up - otherwise you have to adapt quickly to reconfigure the tables.
The feedback:
The Morris code received high marks from many participants.  The overall response was that they got to truly meet people and secure a list of follow up networking connections with real promise.
The rest of the puzzle:
Success only comes to those who follow up with one on one networking to cement a relationship and to delve deeper into how we can truly be more successful together.
