🚀🚀Introducing Mission Blast to the 2019 festival!!🚀🚀

Now’s the time to share your amazing 15s30mMission with the world!

We know how keen you all will be to celebrate the fabulous ideas you have come up with.

The format will be really informal – the mission blast participants will sit in a circle, talking to 3-5 festival attendees at a time about their mission. After 3 minutes, the ‘listeners’ will move on so you have a new group of heroes to talk to, a bit like speed dating but with more joy!

The listeners will pick their favourite 3 missions, and then there’ll be a glossy awards ceremony later in the afternoon! Sounds fun eh!

What will I learn at the festival?

You will learn about our social movement, the impact of reducing frustration and increasing joy at work and how any staff member can get started tomorrow!

*NEW* Festival Stalls

During the afternoon we’ve laid on some stalls which you might find useful, where you can ask and learn from experienced QI practitioners.  When you arrive you’ll be asked to sign up for the sessions, first come first served. You’ll have enough time to attend x3 of these stalls.

Dan Wadsworth – Transformation Manager & Co-Founder of 15s30m
