It's happening in Berlin: Oct 31 - Nov 2, 2014
(plus a post conference workshop)
Berlin is where you meet the most interesting people... Berlin is where you hear the most incredible stories... Berlin is where you can learn, create and experiment with new things... With its vivid history, its diversity of people and cultures, its sweep in knowledge and innovation: Berlin is all about CHANGE!
The Berlin Change Days is the global Agora for people who are passionate about organizational and personal development. It is a forum where practitioners meet once a year to look at trends, hear about new tools, network and celebrate.
We are proud to announce the 2014 programme and the list of workshops. Our international conference team was overwhelmed by the number and the quality of workshop proposals. We indulged ourselves in all the interesting topics but at the end we had to make a selection. We interviewed all the applicants and the workshops that you will find on our agenda are the result of our effort - a mix of different topics and styles and geographical locations. Our facilitators come from North and South America, Africa, Asia and Europe and they represent different mental models of change. But they all have one thing in common: passion for their subject.
This year we have the pleasure to host one of the greatest thinkers and practitioners of our discipline. Daryl Conner from Atlanta (USA) will give a two days post-conference workshop on Character and Presence of the Change Facilitator. Don't miss it!
What participants of earlier Berlin Change Days say about the event:
"It is one of the most important annual conferences for me to keep on track concerning megatrends, news in facilitation and consulting for "change", and to meet inspiring people."
“This event has made me realize that change-setting is never too late. We always have ample time. We just have to jumpstart it in our unique individual contexts and capacities. There will always be like-minded individuals who are willing to join.”
"I felt enthusiastic and full of new energy. The Berlin Change Days left me inspired and with concrete ideas for how to implement some of these ideas. Thank you very much for this great conference and the co-creation!"
"I feel thankful for the great opportunity meeting so many great people, changing thoughts and ideas and learning a lot. I take lots of inspiration into my work. Thanks to Holger and the team for organizing such a great event. Looking forward to meeting you next year. Good time!"
We are currently producing a list of videos with the facilitators of the upcoming Berlin Change Days. The interviews show the abundance of characters, topics and approaches and they are full of gems. Come back regularly to see the updated list of interviews
