Economic constraints coupled with new technologies mean that changes in the way we work are creating both dilemmas and opportunities.

The Amplified Individual has the necessary skills to grapple with these challenges and use them to create a resilient business model.  This event will explore the nature and characteristics of the Amplified Individual and enhance your own level of amplification. Come along expecting to interact and contribute in order to share the valuable takeaways of an unusual and challenging series of encounters.

The afternoon will include the launch of new video by Andrea Saveri, independent consultant based in Berkeley, California and working at the intersection of foresight and strategy helping organizations adapt to a world of unexpected change (see below for more bio).  In 2008, Andrea's talk at the 2008 NLab Social Networks Conference was very inspiring so this year we have commissioned her to create a new ten minute video developing her ideas in the light of changed economic circumstances. You will be the first to watch, discuss and respond to her challenging and thought-provoking ideas, direct from Silicon Valley. Then learn how to amplify yourself and your business in a practical workshop, followed by a chance to hear from an expert panel of Amplified Individuals in Conversation organised by Toby Moores and Amp09

We'll be using Twitter to share our thoughts. Twitter tag = #nlab

  • Already know how to tweet? Then come along at 12 noon for lunch and an afternoon of intriguing interactions.
  • Need to learn to use Twitter? Join us early at 10.30am for an introductory workshop before the main event begins.
