BEFORE FRIDAY 30th November 2018
WHAT EBBF LOOKS FOR IN SPEAKERS
ebbf speakers are able to spark new thinking and new ideas. Speakers are not expected to share all that is wrong with today’s organizations or economic systems, rather we are looking for individuals able to elevate the discourse and offer uplifting and inspiring (not just interesting) scenarios of current trends and future states. ebbf speakers are able to connect their talk to ebbf’s core principles and values. They often share personal experiences and always talk of issues they are truly passionate about. ebbf keynotes are twice as long as TED talks:
we assign each keynoter 30 minutes to spark inspiration.
WHAT EBBF LOOKS FOR IN LEARNSHOP SESSIONS
the parallel learnshop sessions are highly interactive 90 minutes slots, where participants learn from the facilitator and from each other. They are not longer keynotes and should never be monologues, with interaction and learning experiences being what participants enjoy most. The learnshop facilitator offers their expertise but most importantly brings out from participants their own ideas and conclusions on the theme you will select.
On average 20 to 30 people attend these parallel learnshops.
