Featuring Best in Class Speaker, Jeff Hurt

This is not your father's traditional conference education session. It's an experimental learning laboratory. You'll rotate through four participatory exercises with your peers discussing how space and the environment can foster or hinder collaboration, communication, learning and innovation. Discover how to put them all together to create a unique meeting experience. Walk away inspired to bring these buzzwords to life at your next event.

After attending this session, the participant will be able to:

  • Describe firsthand how design can be a barrier or facilitator to collaboration, communication, learning and innovation.
  • Identify ways to move from education sessions that are expert-centric to participant-centric.
  • Practice two behaviors that will help you become more innovative.
