TBD Conference [Technology. Behaviour. Data] 'ESPÉRANCE' // March 31, '22
Hope is a powerful thing. Humanity's greatest asset, and our greatest weakness, hope can create a business from nothing and change the direction of nations. At a critical period for most businesses and with cynicism, criticality and bias increasing, it's time to reset, check our assumptions, ask different questions and plan.
TBD 'Espérance' (March 31, '22) will enable you to do just that and increase your hope for the future, virtually. While defined as an expectation of hope for the future, this TBD won't be some happy-clappy, kumbaya-fest, though. We'll be asking tough questions and demanding bold answers from those in the know and those in charge. A lot is riding on the next decade, after all.
Including special guests, performances and surprises, TBD is a unique conference that sells out.
Join thousands of your peers and over 20 technologists, economists and policy experts for business-critical advice on how to navigate what's coming at you. We'll be asking answering the hard questions around strategy in an uncertain world, leadership, loyalty, consumers, motivation, data, big and small disruption, challenges and opportunities, to name but a few. Expect change. TBD will help you see what's really going on, what's working, what's not, what's really worth worrying about and where your opportunities are.
From the boardroom to Buddhism, e-commerce to exhaustion, 'Espérance' will explore everything we think is happening to confirm what's actually happening so you can plan for the (and your) future. Expect to hear from experts in core areas and new areas you aren't thinking about yet. At TBD, you learn to get comfortable with being uncomfortable.
Now more than ever, you need a network. TBD gives you that and a whole lot more. You find out what's new and next before the competition. TBD asks the hard/big questions and, thanks to top journalists, we get helpful, honest answers. TBD 'Espérance', is your chance to find out what's changed, what's sliding back, and what you need to do about it.
The fun bit. You always know who is speaking, but you don't know what about until the day of the conference. TBD is a hand-curated ride you give in to that 'changes you'. Not only do we create a unique environment for you to encode the information, but we also provide you with experiences to lock in what you've learned and get exposed to. You'll also connect with a wide variety of people to help you over the next 24 months.

WHO EXPERIENCES TBD?
Join thousands of your peers and world-class speakers you haven't heard from before for a unique event that, according to one CEO that attended, 'stays with you'. TBD will help you see what's really going on, what's working, what's not, what's really worth worrying about, and where your opportunities are. In addition to the bigger companies, plenty of smaller companies come to find out how to influence big guys and be seen by them. Million-pound deals have happened because of connections made at TBD.
If you like being inspired and getting practical advice rather than stargazing, come to TBD. #TBDconf
