Open Space
Open Space is at the heart of almost every unconference we design. It allows groups from 5-2.000 people to create an agenda live in less than an hour for a complete multi-track conference. Participants are given simple guidelines that help the day flow. Then, at the close of a day, everyone gathers together to share what unfolded.

Black Market of Knowledge

The transfer of knowledge as a communicative and performative act. The starting point is an interesting and current topic on which local knowledge has been accumulated. The market creates a space to retrieve this knowledge. The individual conversations of experts and discussion partners can be followed by observers (”black listeners”).

Why You Feel What You Feel

Understanding why you feel what you feel is one of the most important aspects of human development. After understanding comes control. When you control your emotions through vertical development, you can be more successful and happy. We’ve all seen adults behave like children and ‘throw their toys out of the pram’ if they don’t get their way. An inability to control emotions prevents us from growing up and becoming mature successful human beings. Dr. Alan Watkins, founder of Complete Coherence, introduces the key phases of human development and explains why poor emotional control is holding back progress. He asks us to imagine a world where we never have to feel anything we don’t want to feel; where we have complete control of what we feel and when we feel it. Emotions meet technology in a new app (Universe of Emotions). Taking us on a journey around this Universe, Dr Watkins explains how we can choose our own emotional ‘planetary’ address and live happier and more fulfilled lives. Alan Watkins is CEO and founder of leadership consultancy, Complete Coherence. He is recognized as an international expert on leadership and human performance. Dr Watkins has a broad mix of commercial, academic, scientific and technological abilities. Over the past 18 years he has been a coach to many of Europe’s top business leaders and has helped companies treble share price, enter the FTSE 100, salvage difficult turnarounds and establish market leadership in their industry. He has written five books and numerous peer reviewed scientific articles. He advised the GB Olympic squad prior to London 2012 and is working with them leading up to Rio in 2016. He has three degrees and is a neuroscientist by background.
