An unconference means that you set the topics based on your challenges or knowledge.
We start the day by setting the schedule together. The rest of the day is parallel tracks of short sessions. You’ll meet people engaged in a range of related fields—all sharing their experience in the name of progressing the state-of-the-art. Over 95% of the participants leave with actionable insight that they apply within a week or less, and most make long-lasting connections to collaborators and advisors.
