We're an oddity in the conference space and we like that. This also means that there are some questions that just have to be answered to help clear things up. So here you go, in order of the most frequently asked too...
NO. We typically have 4-7 sponsors at any session and they must be represented from VP level and above. Beyond this, we do not sell tickets to vendors. Therefore our audience composition is usually 80% practitioners. Any vendor that you do get to chat with at Leaders Lounge is seriously cool!
This is a mixture of our fanbase that is with us more than twice a year, guests of guests, and newcomers that we reach out to from time to time
We are a smart operation that does not need to focus on having more than 4-7 sponsors. We also maintain a smart balance of practitioners: vendors (80:20).
Simply put, we love that we have the ability to attract some of the smartest people and have them socialize their ideas because fundamentally that is what improves the quality of a workplace. We want to normalize excellence as a standard for our experience at work and so intensifying the level and frequency of those conversations is what creates that. The more we talk about it at the right level, the closer we are to it as a reality. Hence our slogan..."Always be an amazing workplace".
Well we're not a conference, and not quite a workshop. What all of this means is that you get deeper connections, and more interactive sessions all led by emcees that are EX experts and executive coaches to drive a more tactical experience for you. The mixture of formats through the day from solo's, panels, post-panel ideas Xchange, think-tanks, and all of the networking make Leaders Lounge a place that many have always wanted from a gathering, in terms of size, format, energy, and focus within three specifics topics; organizational design, employee experience, and enterprise culture.
Just try to help us when you can. Everything is put together as a community. We'll talk at some point and you might play an important role onstage at a future session, or facilitate a discussion at a think-tank. If you have colleagues that would benefit from being with you here, tell them to get intouch. If you know of vendors that are incredible too, introduce us.
We're happy doing things the way we do it and so are our guests. So we're keeping conversations going this way. Meaningfully!
