Change and Innovation Adventures.
The AntiConference.

Join us on May 15th 2020 for a full day packed with insights about hands-on change and transformation projects, innovation and new ways of working that are useful in the new volatile and complex business context we’re all working in.

The twist is that, unlike traditional conferences, there will be no fixed agenda and no formal speeches. No speakers and no pre-enrollment for specific sessions.

Wait, what? 
The focus will be on ad-hoc workshops, sharing sessions and lots of informal networking instead.

We’ll tackle 3 main themes:

  • Change and Transformation
  • Innovation
  • New Ways of Working

The novelty comes from the fact that any of the AntiConference participants can propose a topic related to any of these 3 themes and get the attention of the audience. Debates, panels, lectures, workshops or any other format – your choice!
Topics will be discussed in parallel and the audience is able to move anytime from one discussion to another. The feedback is instant.

Our role as the organizers of the AntiConference is to provide the framework and curate the participants list, so that all the guests can equally contribute and learn from the sessions.
Additionally, we’re going to extend invitations to international experts, practitioners and leaders from the European ICG network to enrich the talks with their global insights.

You should join, if you:

  • Are a corporate director or manager and are interested in any of the 3 AntiConference themes: Change and Transformation, Innovation, New Ways of Working.
  • Are excited about some ideas and you want to share them with your peers.
  • Had a successful project related to the 3 themes and want to share your experience with your peers.
  • Had a failed project related to the 3 themes and want to share your experience with your peers.
  • Want to hear new practical ideas from your peers, not necessarily from consultants.
  • Think you can generate a debate on a topic that is top of mind for you and then use the results of the debate in your work.

What you can expect:

  • Meet people with experiences, ideas, certainties and uncertainties similar to yours.
  • Create an audience around the topic that you propose and see how others leave other talks to join yours. Or not.
  • Long breaks for networking and exploration of potential partnerships for your business.
  • Understand how others succeeded and failed, follow their steps and don’t repeat the same mistakes.
  • Meet the colleagues from Integrated Consulting Group, who proposed the themes above and make the whole story happen.
  • Learn how to visually facilitate a session and how to organize an interesting talk (useful info especially if you will propose a topic during the AntiConference).
  • Taste savory chocolate, fine cheese and wine.

When everybody will get to attend anticonferences, you will be able to say that you were among the participants to one the very first anticonferences in Romania.
