Open Space

Over the course of the conference, there will be around 4 hours of time devoted to Open Space.

It’s never possible to capture everyone’s interests within a pre-planned conference. We’ve introduced the process of Open Space to enable you to discuss, develop ideas, solutions and opportunities for collaboration around the issues you are most passionate about.

The conference themes contain some amazing presenters. Combining their insights with your knowledge and passions through Open Space you will leave the conference feeling inspired and more deeply connected with others who are ready to make a difference.

“Open Space works best when the work to be done is complex, the people and ideas involved are diverse, the passion for resolution (and potential for conflict) are high, and the time to get it done was yesterday. It’s been called passion bounded by responsibility, the energy of a good coffee break, intentional self-organization, spirit at work, chaos and creativity, evolution in organization, and a simple, powerful way to get people and organizations moving — when and where it’s needed most.”   Michael Herman
