The Unconferences that we host are a medium to facilitate Collaborative and Informal Peer Learning; and we don’t charge our guests for that! These are small group (up to 15 participants at a time) and informal get-togethers. We genuinely want real and meaty discussions to happen so everybody gets to take back their share of authentic learning.
Look forward to more in this space and if you would like to be invited for an Unconference, please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
