The Next Bigger Better Society Presents.... Get Together - 18.11.11

A conference about collaboration, creativity and curiosity


"A technology company is no longer one that comes from Silicon Valley, technology is having an impact on how we all do business" Anon.

It used to be that we could ignore technology if we didn't want it, now in a world that is absolutely connected through technology, we are all technology trialists.

The Get Together Conference from The Next Bigger Better Society aims to look at the impact technology is making on all our lives. Through our theme of "TECHNOLOGY + HUMANITY = EVOLUTION?" our great cast of speakers will use their expertise and thought leadership to show us where we are now, what the future holds and how technology is being used in many different ways to enhance our lives. The conference will give you key takeaways about:

  • how technology can be applied within your business
  • how it isn't always about using technology first, but deploying it better
  • the rights and wrongs of mixing technology and business
  • where should I use social media and where should we avoid it
  • how technology can tell powerful stories about your brand and business
  • how technology and creativity can be applied to position your business for social good

You'll get to listen to experts, debate their points and be given time to discuss the conference with them during our breakout sessions. It is the go-to conference for technology this winter and one that you cannot afford to miss. Tickets are on sale now at £50. See below or click herefor an up-to-date agenda.

Why is the Get Together Conference for you?

1) Quality of Speaker: We have sourced both the most curious and the most challenging speakers we could find. It means for the price of a £97 ticket, you can get access to some incredibly modern thinking on technology and its role in society.

2) Collaboration and Discussion: By getting two speakers on stage at once, we are triggering a debate between the two. By then giving them a brief to work to, we are enabling them to show us their thought-leadership. Our aim is to make the conference completely inclusive, bringing the audience into the debate.

3) Value: At £50 this isn't simply for the elite. It is designed to be inclusive for anyone who considers themselves to be "always learning or constantly curious".  

 

As part of the Next Bigger Better Society, we'll also be launching The Get Together Fund. A fund aimed at getting the UK's teenagers off the street. At a time of uncertainty, during a time when the government won't invest in the services that they need, its down to people like us to support the teenagers with the brightest ideas, help them grow through mentoring, and provide an inspirational output.
