Have you attended an unconference?

May 18, 2017 at 8:00 am Leave a comment

Do you find conferences too scripted, too passive – or maybe you prefer to sit and take it in (especially on Fridays).

Here are a couple of references to get you thinking:

Wikipedia Definition: “An unconference, also called an Open Space conference, is a participant-driven meeting. The term “unconference” has been applied, or self-applied, to a wide range of gatherings that try to avoid one or more aspects of a conventional conference, such as fees, sponsored presentations, and top-down organization.”
