We’re all tired of webinars. We’ve all had enough of knowing exactly what we will learn before we click on the link.

A Chain Conversation is a format which allows the participants to drive the conversation in the direction they want, without the expectation that they have to sell an idea or a tool for it to be valuable. Think of it as much as a conversation you might listen to during lunch at a conference. A couple of smart people talking about an interesting topic for 20 minutes.

In 2021, we created a chain of conversations between some remarkable people who are carving out new ways of working. The format was straightforward. Each conversation lasted for 20 minutes between two people. At the end of each conversation, one person dropped off and another joined, leading to a “chain conversation” that stretched across different time zones and continents.

The theme for this event asked:

How do we co-create our future?

Beyond that, there was no rigid structure or desired outcomes to each conversation. Just a place to explore and the rest of us to listen in. The event featured global perspectives across a range of fields and industries.

Check out what happened in 2021 below:

6 hours 3 minutes

There are bios of each of the 18 participants on the original publication page linked above.
