2018 Black Forest Walkshop
Get your ideas - and yourself - out in the open
The 2018 Walkshop will take us through southern Germany's Black Forest as we go for a multi-day hike with other technology and design thought leaders.
A select group of 10 people will recharge while being offline - walking and wandering in small groups through the picturesque backdrop of the Black Forest. These 10 will discuss a question and then swap topics when a line of thought has run its course. The path we follow through Germany will help guide interactions: the path will narrow to restrict a discussion to a single pair of walkers who can fit together on the trail. And later, as larger spaces open up, the path will allow for us to regroup, slow down, and take stock of our surroundings.
Ideas tend to flow more freely in a Walkshop than they would around a conference table. People are more inclined to ‘think outside the box’, and come up with fresh and radical insights and innovations when they go off the grid for a few days. And by the second day of the hike - the normal inhibitions and pretense all melt away while you focus on the trail, your destination, your companions, and yourself.
We hope you can attend this fall to gain new insights and build new connections.
