Explore our General Gatherings

Over four different Gatherings during the main conference we will all come together for shared and interactive learning experiences. Here we will hear from a selection of fearless “trail blazers” whose contributions will be animated and focused by a Walk the Talk “Guide”. Each Gathering includes a ceremonial/artistic opening, innovative thought leaders, participatory engagement with the audience and insightful reflections by “Witnesses”.
