seeking bold mavericks ready to shake things up

Let's bring joy, discovery and the true spirit of collaboration back into business events

Our global network of partners come with decades of​ experience in the world of uconferences, meetings and workshops - from every angle.
Our main takeaway from those years is that...

We need to turn the thinking behind an old and dusty conference culture upside down by designing professionally facilitated experiences built around the know-how of all participants.

This reduces our reliance on monologues by "experts" and give everyone a voice, in a world racing towards a more diverse & inclusive future. 

We love guiding you and your participants through a joyful, engaging and interactive experience - yes, even online! Whether you're trying to build a member-based community, inspire internal change, run a large-scale customer event or simply have a community conversation on Zoom, we've done it all. 

​We're made up of a dedicated team of multi-skilled events professionals around the world ready to design & deliver your very own inspiring uncommon platform. We also offer consulting, training and facilitation services depending on your unique needs.

​We've always challenged the status quo and want to make an impact with our work. In a nutshell, we want to leave the (events) world a better place.
