Unconference Session

This year, some of the breakout sessions will be held as “unconference sessions.”Attendees will come with an idea, a question, or a topic they’d like to hear discussed.  During the course of the morning topics will be posted, attendees will vote and the top vote-getters will lead our unconference sessions. People may bring short presentations or demos of their ideas, if they think it’ll be beneficial to the conversation. The goal is to explore, teach, and learn. The power is in the participants’ hands!

Topics/big ideas/questions can be professional, technical or philosophical. As long as it leads to discussion, no potential topic is off limits.

If you have an idea that you want as a topic for a session, please enter it here.

Have you ever volunteered and felt like you made a difference in someone’s life when you left? There are many ways to “give back” so find the right fit for you. Being blessed at work and in life is a call to action to help others. Learn to give more than just your money.
