We had all separately been going to lots of events related to our respective industries but had observed that all too often London meetups, the people you met and thinking can be siloed in anecho chamber of agreementwith people working in the same discipline holding similar views.
Converge+UK is about bringing together different disciplines to discuss and prompt creative abrasion; at the overlap between disciplines is where the magic occurs, leading to the creation of better products and services and more meaningful impact.
Speakers emphasise lessons from the trenches in real startups, the good the bad and the ugly. We are looking for speakers to speak to a challenge, triumph, learning from each camp: Design, Business & Technology.
What's the format?
3 main speakers, one from each discipline at 10 minutes each
2 group exercises, 1 between each main speaker
Open invitation for anyone to speak in the "5in5" format; 5 slides in 5 minutes to be submitted in advance
Continue the conversation, drink, eat and network with us and the other people in the room
