Keynotes & Retreats

Inspiring content + Incredible ideas + Expert support

We know what it’s like: You are in charge of organizing a conference or team retreat. You want it to be fun, fast-paced,  deep, insightful, relevant.  You want the event to be talked about long after it’s over. You need a theme that’s cohesive and refreshing, and you need help pulling it together FAST. We’ve joined forces with our sister company, Surprise Industries, to help you out.

What we do

We provide:

  • Quick blast Consulting  to help you easily identify and deepen your theme, creating a ‘red thread’ throughout the event.
  • Thrilling keynotes on topics like strategy, culture, meta-learning, innovation, delight, the science of habits
  • 1.5 hour Learning labs to build fast-touch skills (see list here)
  • Strategy sessions guided by expert facilitators
  • An ‘experience map’ that unites elements and weaves in delight.
  • Custom-crafted surprise adventures and themes that match you

Who we've done it for:

  • At Google’s Educators conference we provided a day full of rotating learning labs.
  • At WholeFoods‘ Vision Day conference we provided walls full of ideas, labs on the science of delight, and surprises under seats.
  • At PSCU’s leadership summit we crafted two days worth of strategy, insight, and ‘flex’.
  • At Etsy’s Hello Etsy conference we led 500 people through a learning expedition on ‘Sustainable Enthusiasm’. Who needs renewable energy when you’ve got sustainable enthusiasm?
  • For TED we tracked and disrupted (positively) audience member’s expectations.
  • For IDEO we created a campfire learning lab on experience design / purposeful delight, complete with mulch and smores.

And much more.
